April 11, 2022 – The Robert Service Way Snow Dump will close for the season on Wednesday, April 13.

Snow Removal Schedule - Week of April 9

  • Crews will be focusing on priority tasks across Whitehorse relating to potential drainage issues and preparing drainage systems for the spring melt.
  • Snow removal will continue (pulling into the centre) from various streets as required, and, specifically in Takhini and Downtown.
  • Snow loading and hauling crews will be in various areas of Takhini, Whistle Bend and Downtown.
  • Sanding continues as needed across all transportation routes.
  • Multiple crews have begun filling pot holes as routes dry. Major potholes can be reported 24/7 to the Road Maintenance Control Centre at 633-7669.

Keep at least 15 metres from crews and equipment, and watch for snow removal and advance warning signs.

New snowfall, extreme cold weather, or other unexpected delays may result in a street not being cleared of snow. Occasionally your street may be scheduled for clearing but it gets skipped. This usually happens when there are multiple vehicles parked on the street, slowing down progress clearing snow and ice. Crews rely on your support, and the support of your neighbours, to move your vehicles (and any obstacles) off the street so snow and ice can be cleared efficiently.

We use a four level priority system for snow and ice control in the City. As long as it’s snowing, crews will be focused on snow and ice control on priority 1 and 2 roads. The City allows priority 3 and 4 roads to pack to a hardened snow surface until such time as the snow can be completely removed and hauled away.
