Report roads or sidewalks in need of repair 

The Town of Stony Plain has a crew to maintain the 171 km roads and 98 km of sidewalks through out the year. Each year, the crew coordinates line painting, street sweeping, ice control, snow removal, thawing catch basins, grading roads, dust control, issuing road permits, and maintaining traffic lights.

Residential Street Sweep, Starting on May 6th

 
April 8, 2024 crews began sweeping the streets and boulevards. Watch for crews out washing the sidewalks downtown to remove the salt and sand from the sidewalks onto the road so they can follow with the equipment to sweep the streets.  Once the priority roads have been swept they will move into the residential neighborhoods. Signs are not posted on priority roads for when crews will be in the area. Signs will be posted in areas for residential street sweeping, residents should remove their vehicles from the roads to ensure equipment can remove the debris.

 

When residential street sweeping begins we will start updating the neighborhood status.

Snow and Ice Routes

Sanding trucks maintain slippery road sections regularly during the winter months. Public Works sends out plowing equipment when 5 cm of packed snow builds up on main roadways. Snow removal typically operates from Monday to Friday with weekend operations left to the discretion of the Operations Supervisor.  

Currently, the road priority list is as follows: 

  1. Arterial roads 
  2. School zones 
  3. Bus routes 
  4. Downtown
  5. Collector roads 

To report a concern you may use the link above or call Public Works at 780-963-2469. Snow and Ice Control Route Map

 

Snow and Ice on Sidewalks

Snow or ice build up on sidewalks is your responsibility. You must clear ice and snow from all sidewalks bordering your property (including the sidewalk area on your driveway). Snow must be removed after each snowfall.

If you own a rental property or if you are travelling/working out of Town, you are still responsible for clearing your sidewalks after each snowfall.

  • Clear snow to the bare surface of the sidewalk to prevent extra work after more snow falls
  • Do not place snow removed from your sidewalk on to the roadway. The snow must be shoveled on to your property. Shoveling snow on to a road can result in drainage issues in the spring and may result in a fine
  • During extreme temperatures, you may use sand to spread on an icy sidewalk bordering your property. Free sand is located in the box outside the fence at Public Works. Please bring your own container

Snow Removal Orders

If you do not clear your sidewalks, a Peace Officer may issue an order requiring you to remove the snow and ice (including the sidewalk area on your driveway) within seven days.

Once an order has been issued, you will not receive extra warnings. You must keep your sidewalks clear of snow and ice or a contractor may be hired to remove snow and ice as necessary. Costs will be added to your property taxes. Additional fines may also be issued.  

Fines

Failure to remove snow and ice from your sidewalk can result in a:

  • $250 fine for a first offence
  • $500 fine for a second offence, in the same year
  • $750 fine for a third offence, or subsequent offences, in the same year

Remove Snow around Fire Hydrants

When an emergency occurs, fire crews rely on having access to fire hydrants to respond as quickly as possible. Every second counts – snow build up around the hydrant can result in delays to an emergency response.

Do your part in keeping your community safe by:

  • Removing any snow or ice from hydrants
  • Clearing a one-meter perimeter around hydrants
  • Clearing a path to hydrants from the sidewalk or street
  • Avoiding piling snow on or around hydrants and ensuring they are visible at all times

For fire safety questions and concerns, contact the Stony Plain Fire Department.

Residential Snow Removal

Public Works monitors the packed snow depth in residential areas, when the snow pack measures 10 cm deep they will begin Residential Snow Removal. Ensure you remove all vehicles, trailers and driveway ramps from the street. Watch for signs in your community to alert you when crews will be in your area. Wait until crews have removed the signs in your area before moving vehicles back onto the street, crews may need to do a second pass in area that have cul-de-sac or a corner. Snow clearing will not occur on garbage days.

Seasonal Road Bans will be starting April 1 to May 31

The Town has set a 75 per cent axle load road ban within Stony Plain.  All residential and collector roads are restricted within the Town boundaries, with the following exceptions:

 North Business Park

Golf Course Road (from Highway 16A to south Town boundary)

Veterans Boulevard (south of Highway 16A to Highway 628)

Rosenthal Road (from Highway 16A to SH 628 (79 Avenue))

49 Avenue (between 50 street and Golf Course Road)

The ban is in place to prevent damage to streets, caused by overloaded trucks, and to prevent related high-costs of repairs.

During the road bans, all back lane garbage collection will move to the front street.

The following commercial vehicles may carry on the axles on that highway up to 90 per cent of the maximum allowable weight permitted for that single axle or axle group during the period of a Road Ban:

 A vehicle transporting

  • Bread,
  • Repealed AR 30-2004 s2,
  • Mail as defined in the Canada Post Corporation Act (Canada),
  • Heating fuel, or
  • fertilizer
