CALGARY (660 NEWS) – Although the snow has stopped falling, Calgary road crews are still dealing with a few trouble spots.
Chris McGeachy with the roads department said some streets remain slippery.
“We have a big city, there’s lots of microclimates, certain areas may have been hit by more snow than others. If there’s a bigger accumulation we will plow. Right now, we are laying down salt and that’s to help accelerate melting and prevent the build-up of ice.”

Right now, road crews are focused on high-volume priority one roads such as Crowchild and Glenmore Trail.
The City of Calgary is also reminding you to clear sidewalks as icy patches might be present.
Sidewalks also need to be cleared within 24 hours after the #yycsnow has stopped, which means the walk in front of your home or business must be cleared by 10 pm tonight. Our crews are also clearing public sidewalks during these 24 hours. Learn more: https://t.co/AOJwaEpvdo

McGeachy said with temperatures slowly rising this week, it looks like mother nature will do most of the work for them.
“We do anticipate because the temperature is climbing to double-digits, it’s going to help us with our clearing efforts.”
