Cutting back of snowbanks begins Wednesday night in Orillia

Work will be done as weather conditions permit

Waiting for Mother Nature to do the job is not an option.

The City of Orillia says crews will be cutting back snowbanks and hauling away snow during the overnight hours this week beginning at 11 p.m. on Wednesday.

The work is being done to help restore lane widths, provide additional snow storage, and improve the line of sight for both pedestrians and motorists.

The work is subject to weather conditions.

Residents are asked to please assist crews by:

  • Keeping vehicles off the road (overnight parking by-law is in effect).
  • Ensuring vehicles in driveways are not overhanging the road
