The official start date changes every year depending on the weather.
It typically beings in mid to late April after all the snow/ice has melted and temperatures stay above 0 degrees Celsius.
Additionally, schedules also consider time for equipment maintenance and weather delays (rain and/or snow events).
Chestermere has over 110 kilometres of roadways. For comparison – that is roughly the same distance as driving between Chestermere and Canmore. Considering both sides of the road will be swept, this doubles the length to over 220 kilometres!
It takes about 9 weeks to sweep both directions of the roadway and all curbs, gutters, and medians.
