Snow and sidewalk

Snow and sidewalk

Canada/Montreal, Snow and sidewalk!

In Montreal, keeping sidewalks clear and safe in winter is a duty of the municipality, but in some places this is done by households.

Credit for the concept that municipalities should remove snow from public roadways usually goes to Edward N. Hines, a celebrated early 20th century transportation thinker who also was the first to put a painted center line stripe on an automobile-era road.

The stages involved in snow removal operations in Montreal:
1. Salt and gravel spreading as soon as the sidewalks become slippery;
2. Plowing as soon as there is 2.5 cm of snow on the ground;
3. Loading as soon as there is 10 to 15 cm of snow on the ground. 
These operations are carried out continuously until the sidewalks are cleared and safe.
