Guelph, ON, December 28, 2015–Like the rest of the region, the City of Guelph is expecting winter weather over the next 24 hours. While today’s weather conditions aren’t unusual for this time of year, the City is reminding residents to drive according to conditions, in part because this is Guelph’s first true winter weather of the season.
City crews have already salt-brined all primary and secondary routes in the city, along with all bridge decks. This is in anticipation of snow, ice pellets, freezing rain and rain—all expected within the next 24 hours or so.
Crews will also be clearing and treating sidewalks and designated public stairways as necessary.
Later, the City’s priority will be to clear roads for tomorrow morning’s commute. Residents are reminded to be alert and adjust their driving to match the conditions.
