As a major winter storm looks set to move into Toronto, the city is preparing.
The City of Toronto, transit services and school boards have all outlined plans to respond to a storm that could drop 15 to 20 cm of snow between Wednesday and Thursday.
On Tuesday evening, city crews will apply salt brine to major roadways and steep hills in anticipation of the storm.
Clearing on Wednesday will then take place when snow reaches 2.5 cm on expressways and 5 cm on major roads and transit routes, the city said.
“Clearing operations are expected to continue into next week as multiple rounds of clearing will be required,” officials said.
