Like many communities throughout central Alberta, the Town of Ponoka is continuing with its snow removal efforts over the coming days.

Town officials say all available snow and ice control equipment is currently in use, with crews working on Priority 1 Routes which include high-volume roads like emergency routes, school bus routes and connector routes.

Once complete, crews will turn to Priority 2 Routes and the airport runway and taxiway.

Downtown has already been cleared according to town officials, with salting and sanding operations continuing elsewhere. Residential clearing is expected to commence once all priority routes have been done.

Town officials remind residents that scheduled clearing can change with new, additional snowfalls.

Residents are also reminded to clear snow and ice from sidewalks bordering their property and to watch for any ‘No Parking’ signs that may be in place in advance of the town’s snow clearing efforts.

Alberta Ministry of Transportation crews are responsible for snow removal on Highways 2A and 53 in Ponoka.
