IT'S WINTERTIME IN AIRDRIE!
Our crews are currently on a 24 hour, seven days a week schedule to ensure that the in climate weather is dealt with in a timely fashion.
The Roads Department maintains over 700 lane kilometres of road; our goal is to provide vehicular traffic with adequate mobility under prevailing winter conditions within the City's financial resources.
With the 2019/2020 winter season arriving in Airdrie here are just a few reminders to help the Roads Crew be proactive with the snow clearing.
- Keep your sidewalks free of snow and ice within 24 hours after a snowfall.
- When clearing sidewalks, snow should be placed on grass, not on the roadway.
- If a windrow has been left behind after a snowplow as been on your street, it is the responsibility of the homeowner to remove it.
- If we experience a chinook, please be sure that a trench along the curb is made to ensure that the run off can make it to a storm drain. If water is not going down the drain due to a build up of snow and ice, contact the Roads department.
- Check the City of Airdrie Snow Clearing 101 and other tips and reminders here.
The City of Airdrie Roads Department maintains and repairs a complex network of roads, back lanes and sidewalks.
The Roads department strives to provide a safe and reliable roadway network by:
- Repairing roads, back lanes, sidewalks, curbs and gutters

- Installation of traffic and pedestrian signals, signs and line markings
From April to October, repairs are undertaken on the roads, back lanes, curbs, gutters and sidewalks identified in the regular patrols and annual survey of conditions. All the repairs are prioritized and the most severe ones are scheduled first. Work is performed as weather permits.
