Snow and Ice Control
During snow and ice conditions, normal transportation patterns for pedestrians and vehicles are interrupted. Driving conditions encountered include general loss of traction, visibility, steering and braking ability. The public can reduce their risk by using good winter driving equipment such as winter tires and chains and by using caution to match the road conditions during winter weather. Minimum vehicle trips are recommended.
Please be aware that when snow plowing activities occur, all snow is not taken off the streets, which may lead to freezing ice conditions. As streets have numerous manhole covers and serious injury could arise if a manhole was hit with a plow blade. Plows are set just above the surface of the road when clearing snow and ice. Visit our snow removal page for more information.top
Report any street light issues to the District of Maple Ridge Operations Centre for both metal and wooden pole street lights. When reporting an issue, please be prepared to provide information including the closest address or intersection, the condition of the street light and whether or not it is on a wooden or metal pole. For more information on street lights visit our street lights & traffic lights page.top
Vacuum sweepers draw debris & use specialized attachments to reduce dust, collect leaves, and clean catch basins. In the Spring, sweepers remove sand deposited for snow and ice control in order to prevent sand from grinding away street markings and clogging drains. In the Fall, sweepers remove leaves and other debris from the streets as quickly as possible to prevent leaves from clogging drains.
