Trying to get around Surrey in a car but hoping to avoid the snow? Here are the city of Surrey’s prioritized snow removal routes.

The city of Surrey has roads divided into three categories:

Priority 1: These roads are the first to be plowed and include high volume arterial roads, major collector roads and steeply graded roads.
Priority 2: These are the second set of roads to be plowed. These include secondary roads in residential areas and access roads to long-term care facilities.
Priority 3: These are the remaining roads that are not categorized as Priority 1 or 2. When it comes time to tackle these roads, city crews will begin systematically with significant roads, hill areas and identified problem locations.

You can see the routes mapped out below.

Priority 1: Pink
Priority 2: Orange
Priority 3: Grey
