This dataset also shows the various salting requirements that are in conjunction with the snow plowing process. Whenever snowplow activity is detected (i.e. plow/wing engaged and/or salt spreader active) data is recorded. Road plowing and salting activities are prioritized by road classification, as outlined in Regulation 239/02 of the Municipal Act. Road classification is determined by traffic volumes and posted speed limits. Arterial Roads and Transit Routes are treated first (Red Routes), Collector Roads (Blue Routes) are given 2nd priority, and Residential Roads (Green Routes) are given 3rd priority.
