Surrey Alerts - Winter Conditions
February 14: Heavy rain is being forecast for the Lower Mainland, starting tonight until Thursday. Surrey’s main roads are in good shape, but please drive carefully as there may be ponding of water on roadways.
Crews have been focusing on ensuring that all catch basins are cleared in anticipation of rain and warmer temperatures. In many instances, the snow on the side of the road is being plowed onto the sidewalk area. If snow has been plowed onto your sidewalk, please do not shovel it back onto the roadway. Please shovel snow onto grass areas or onto your yard instead. We greatly appreciate the efforts of everyone who are clearing sidewalks and we ask that you please be patient.
