Snow Removal

Snow removal is an important priority for the Town. Our Public Works department endeavors to keep our roads safe by removing snow and sanding as required.  

We all play a role in snow removal in Vegreville. To ensure safe, effective, and complete removal of snow, residents are asked to avoid parking on roads designated for snow removal. 

Wondering what roads have been designated for snow removal? Find out how to stay informed below. 

Removal in order of priority  

  • Main arteries and emergency routes
  • School zones, assisted living complexes, and seniors complexes
  • Residential areasalternating daily between the north-side to the south-side of the Town
  • Vegreville Airport, as time and resources permit; and
  • Back alleys are cleared when equipment and operators are available

Keep tabs here for the latest on designated snow removal routes throughout the season. Please note, planned routes can change without notice due a sudden change in weather conditions.
