In a bulletin issued by the city’s Transportation Services, the city said plowing and salting of major roadways have been completed and the snow removal process has begun.
“The work involves dozens of crews using front end-loaders and dump trucks that collect snow and then remove it to the City’s network of five snow storage sites,” the bulletin read.
However, the city said sidewalks and bike lanes are still being worked on, particularly in locations that were blocked or missed earlier in the week.
Toronto saw approximately 55 cm of snowfall Monday.
The storm led to treacherous driving conditions throughout the region and caused cars and transit vehicles to get stuck for hours.
There is still no service on Line 3 on the TTC as a result of the storm.
“TTC crews cleared, by hand, more than 14,500 cubic metres of snow along Line 3 (The Scarborough RT) from McCowan Yard Guideway to Kennedy Loop,” the bulletin read.
TTC spokesperson Stuart Green tweeted that shuttle buses will be operating.
Toronto Mayor John Tory declared a “major snowstorm condition” Monday to help with the snow removal process. According to the condition, parking on roads designated as snow routes is prohibited for a period of 72 hours.
On Friday, the City extended the major snowstorm condition until full clean-up is complete.
According to Transportation Services, crews have travelled more than 350,000 km while salting and plowing expressways, arterial roads, neighbourhood roads and sidewalks.
