Guelph residential plow out starting at 10:00 p.m., Sunday, February 2

Please move parked cars off the street

Guelph, Ont., February 2 – A residential plow out is scheduled to start at 10 p.m., Sunday, February 2, and will continue until all roads and sidewalks are plowed.

Overnight on-street parking exemptions are not valid during a residential plow out. Unless there are signs saying parking is permitted between 2 and 6 a.m., please move all cars off the street to make room for plows, buses, and emergency vehicles.

Please wait 24 hours to report a problem spot

A full residential plow out takes about 24 hours to complete. Please give us time to finish our routes before reporting a problem spot. We plow main roads first, then secondary roads and residential streets are plowed last. 

Sidewalks are cleared within three days

Guelph’s 700 kilometres of sidewalks and multi-use paths take three days to clear. We appreciate your patience as we work our way through the city.
