The official start date changes every year depending on the weather.
It typically beings in mid to late April after all the snow/ice has melted and temperatures stay above 0 degrees Celsius.
Additionally, schedules also consider time for equipment maintenance and weather delays (rain and/or snow events).
Chestermere has over 110 kilometres of roadways. For comparison – that is roughly the same distance as driving round trip between Chestermere and Canmore. It takes about 9 weeks to sweep all the roads, curbs, gutters, and medians.
