Snow removal Burnaby: Here’s a map of priority routes for snowplows

Too bad Burnaby can’t burn up all that snow. But if you’re trying to avoid snowy streets in Burnaby, what you can do is study this map of the city’s priority routes for snowplows.

The city of Burnaby has roads divided into multiple categories:

Priority 1: Arterial streets.
• Priority 2: Bus routes and collector roads.
• Priority 3: Local roads with steep grades and only one outlet; roads around elementary schools, senior centres and long-term care homes.
• All other local roads not falling into the other three categories are prioritized last.

You can see the routes mapped out below.

To see the snow routes, click the layer icon (three stacked diamonds) on the map below and select ‘snow removal routes’.

Priority 1: Red
Priority 2: Blue
Priority 3: Green
Other: Grey
