Cul-de-sacs snow clearing

The City of Moncton has approximately 120 cul-de-sacs within city limits. In order to reduce the amount of loading and hauling on cul-de-sac streets during the winter months, crews do their first pass in the direction of traffic, placing snow on the outside of the cul-de-sac. Once the first pass is completed, the remainder of the snow is placed in the centre of the cul-de-sac.

This procedure allows for optimizing snow storage, reducing the amount of snow to be hauled away and most importantly increasing safety for operators and motorists.
