Wednesday evening winter weather update

Thank you Ladysmith, for going above and beyond these past 24 hours and shovelling and clearing your sidewalks.
Our crews were busy all day, and the roads are currently in pretty good shape. Similarly, sidewalks downtown are all clear for you to enjoy the Festival of Lights and shop local!
However, we anticipate icy and slippery conditions early tomorrow, with temperatures dipping to - 7 C just before daybreak. For this reason, Town crews will again be getting an early start with salt/sanding in priority areas.
If you're also up early tomorrow, we encourage you to use caution when leaving home and take the time to assess the road conditions.
There are no updates at this time for make up collection days for the Yellow and Orange routes. We'll keep you posted though.
Here's the good news! The FJCC Fitness Centre will open as scheduled at 6 am. Stay warm and go for that morning walk on the treadmill.
