Heavy snowfall means non-stop snow clearing in Fort St. John and Dawson Creek

Workers in that city have been working extended hours with additional contracted equipment to remove all of the holiday snowfall. 

Here in Fort St. John, Public Works staff are removing the windrows of snow from downtown streets, so drivers who notice workers ahead of them are asked to avoid the area and turn a few streets away from them. 


The City says crews are currently clearing streets in the northwest quadrant of the city, and will be hauling snow all week.

Fort St. John has received another four centimetres of snow this morning, bringing the unofficial monthly total to 121.5 centimetres, surpassing the 1980 record of 118.3.
