As weather temperatures get cooler, the City of White Rock is ready for ice and snow.

City crews will proactively be applying brine (a salt water solution applied to the roads in preparation for ice) ahead of winter storms to control ice on the City’s priority routes and hilly streets. When snow starts falling, crews will have road salt ready.   

The City’s Snow & Ice Control Plan prioritizes routes and identifies road closures, which are necessary for public safety.  The City of White Rock manages more than 80 kilometres of roadways, and aims to maintain key travel routes, which are vital for transportation and for emergency vehicle access.

  • Large dump truck with plow and spreader
  • Two mini-dump trucks with plow and spreader
  • One truck with a brine unit 
  • Two one-tonne trucks with plows and spreaders for City properties

  • Clearing storm drains of leaves and snow to prevent road flooding
  • Reporting non-emergency snow and ice service requests to
