All roads and sidewalks maintained by the city considered in a ‘state of repair’ until further notice
The City of Greater Sudbury has declared a significant weather event with respect to existing freezing rain conditions, starting at 5 a.m. on March 6 and continuing until further notice.
This declaration is issued in accordance with Ontario Consolidated Regulation 239/02 under the Municipal Act. All roads and sidewalks maintained by the city are considered in a “state of repair” until further notice.
This declaration is not necessarily a notice of a reduced level of service or a road closure, said the city. It is to notify drivers and pedestrians to use an appropriate level of caution when travelling during this event and avoid unnecessary travel.
“City staff continue to work diligently to ensure public safety, but it may take longer than normal to maintain the roadways and sidewalks normally maintained during this season,” said the city. “Your co-operation is appreciated.”
Leisure programs and GOVA transit service schedules may also be impacted by the weather event. Updates for any scheduled events or transit delays will be posted as required. You can also call 311 with specific questions. For real-time bus information, visit mybus.greatersudbury.ca.
The city will update the public when the significant weather event has ended, through our website, social media and a PSA to local media. When the declaration is cancelled, the standard timeline for road winter maintenance will begin.
