Neighbourhood blading cycle begins Tuesday, February 17

City of Edmonton Roadway Maintenance crews will move into neighbourhoods to start blading to a level snow pack of 5 cm or less starting at from 12:01 a.m. on Tuesday, February 17. Blading will continue until 11:59 p.m. on Monday, February 23 (no blading will take place Saturday or Sunday).

Residents are reminded that the day for blading will stay the same throughout the winter. For instance, if their street is bladed on a Wednesday during the first cycle, it will be on a Wednesday during subsequent cycles.

Edmontonians can find out when crews will be in their areas by visiting Neighbourhood Blading and using either the address search tool or referring to the coloured map graphic.

While parking is not banned during blading in residential areas, the City asks citizens to move their vehicles or park off-street wherever possible so that trucks can blade from curb to curb. Please remember that while windrows are kept to a maximum 30 cm height in front of driveways, curbside windrows are not removed. Those wishing to continue parking on-street after the work has been done are required to clear a spot for themselves.

Blading is a 24-hour, around the clock operation. Crews can be in neighbourhoods at any time on the day blading is scheduled in a particular area.

In addition to blading next week, crews will also be picking up windrows from around schools during the overnight hours. Temporary no-parking signs will be placed ahead of the operations as the equipment used for windrow pick-up is large and crews require unrestricted access to those areas.
