The City of Vancouver is preparing for another snowfall followed by warming temperatures and rain throughout the remainder of the week.

We will continue to salt, plow and treat priority areas as required.

Residents and businesses can expect to see any snow remaining on side streets and sidewalks turning to ice as early as Wednesday evening. The warmer temperatures and clear arterials will allow the City to shift focus and reallocate crews to salt and sand side streets. The priority for treatment will be for side streets most heavily impacted by compacted snow that has accumulated over the last few days. The salt will help to melt the ice, while the sand will provide traction for vehicles.

Help us identify problem spots

If an area requires attention, report it using the City’s VanConnect app or by calling 3-1-1. The City is monitoring incoming requests to identify problem areas and dispatching crews to address those issues.
