Snow Removal Operations for Downtown Gravenhurst

Gravenhurst, ON - Town road crews will commence snow lift (snowbank removal) operations Wednesday January 6th at 9:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. Thursday January 7th

Residents are reminded to exercise caution in the areas in which these operations are taking place. Snow lift operations will take place at the following sections:

Muskoka Rd. (MR 18)
• Winewood Ave. W. to James St.

Bay St. / Brock (MR 169)
• Bethune Dr. to John St.

Residents are reminded that there is NO PARKING on Town roads overnight (Bylaw 2016-92). Any vehicles left on the road will be towed at the owner’s expense. We appreciate your patience. 


Additionally,  under the umbrella of ‘continuous improvement’, the Town is always looking at ways to improve its public works operations. Specific to sidewalk winter operations, this year the Town, as a pilot, has applied a new abrasive with improved ice-melting capabilities.  In some areas, this may have contributed to sidewalks being more slushy than expected.

Crews will be conducting a full sidewalk plow early Wednesday (January 6) morning to reduce any slush accumulation on the sidewalks.
