Winter Maintenance Efficacy Report: Jan 16-17, 2022 – 17HRS 32.5cm Snow

By Michael Holloway @michaelholloway111
Friday, March 04, 2022

This storm exposed the under-capacity of TO Winter Operations – to the date of this writing (March 4, 2022), there are still piles of snow blocking bike lanes across the city.

This project tracked Twitter observations in 12 hour increments – I stopped adding folders and tracking Tweets at 300HRS.

Just to finish this off I bookmarked one yesterday showing very old snow stored in a bike lanes on Collage near Elizabeth – which I will use as the icon image for this storm tracking post.

March 4, 2022

NotSafe4BikesTO on Twitter: “This city is exhausting (College and Elizabeth, north side of College) There’s also been a @TPSOperations vehicle parked in the bike lane at the south east corner of College and Elizabeth the last several times I’ve biked north on Elizabeth. Fun times.” / Twitter

Jan 16-17 2022 17HRS 32.5cm Snow


David MacMillan on Twitter: “Went out for a pizza and…oof. Danforth and Woodbine are a mess. Thank you to the retailer that cleared the bike parking in front of their shop. And shoutout to the woman who called me “crazy for biking a blizzard”. Trails tomorrow. #BikeTO #WalkTO” / Twitter

NotSafe4BikesTO on Twitter: “Lovely job by the condo at 1492 Dundas E – took all of their parking lot snow and piled it into the bike lane. @311Toronto I’m sure you are overwhelmed. Can you please add this to your list of problem spots?” / Twitter

(1) RyanFromToronto on Twitter: “A lot of tweets from ppl who are saying the PlowTO map shows their street as having been ploughed, yet was never ploughed. The same goes for my street, which is home to a group home of disabled. Plows continue 2 pass area but don’t plow nghbrhood #CityofTOWinterAlert @311Toronto” / Twitter


(9) Andrew on Twitter: “@311Toronto can you request to have the Adelaide and Richmond St cycle tracks east of Yonge cleared of snow, please? It’s a nightmare and action is much needed. Thank you very much!” / Twitter

(17) The Biking Lawyer (Dave Shellnutt) on Twitter: “Main roads aren’t bad but bike lanes still aren’t a thing. Recognizing clean up crews are still under a lot of pressure today. Ride safe pals. Picture: Bloor bike lane at Spadina #bikeTO” / Twitter


(8) Bromptoning on Twitter: “I ran a quick errand in my ‘hood only to find ALL bike lane entrances/exits blocked at EVERY intersection. Plowing bike lanes is useless if you just plug them with snow at each end. @311Toronto This is Bathurst St looking west. There’s a bike lane under that snowbank. #BikeTO” / Twitter

(8) Brice Sopher on Twitter: “@311Toronto is there any plan to actually clear bike lanes properly? Bloor is unusable. #BikeTO #VisionZero” / Twitter

(11) Andrew on Twitter: “@311Toronto Yes, cycle tracks on Richmond St and Adelaide St E have not even plowed even the first time. Therefore, I’m officially reaching out to request snow clearing. Thank you! – @kristynwongtam” / Twitter

(12) Reinier G. on Twitter: “@Andrew_Urbanist @311Toronto @kristynwongtam The Woodbine Ave bike lanes are also plowed full. Tomorrow and Thursday we get a Thaw/Freeze cycle. I suspect unless bike lanes are cleared tomorrow, that snow load might be locked in place till middle of March.” / Twitter

Derek Craig on Twitter: “Another snowstorm, another tweet to @311Toronto about a sidewalk plow that failed to actually do its job fully. West side of Victoria Park south of Rowena Drive is totally impassable and needs some attention. @JohnTory @DenzilMW” / Twitter

(1) Tony Tremain 🇨🇦 on Twitter: “6:30PM Duggan Ave has not been plowed yet despite what the map shows @311Toronto @JoshMatlow” / Twitter

(1) Jenny Morin on Twitter: “@311Toronto @cp24 There is a sidewalk where there is a huge snow pile and you have to walk on the road between 4959 Dundas St W and 4975 Dundas St W. How safe is it to have to walk in a live lane of traffic to continue to walk and accessiblity for people who need to get around?” / Twitter


Dave Edwards on Twitter: “FWIW – I just did 30km around the city today. This was the first bike lane I used – I didn’t see it end around the corner. I should have known. Same all over the city. I rammed through the bank and took the lane” / Twitter

(1) Dave Edwards on Twitter: “That about wraps it up for safe travels across the viaduct for a while. How many people sitting in these idling cars are looking out window thinking, “hm, there’s a #ClimateEmergency, maybe I should try biking in winter!”” / Twitter

Toronto Mike on Twitter: “#biketo” / Twitter

Michael Holloway – Schröedinger’s Cyclist on Twitter: “2022-01-19 2:15 pm one lane open on the separated bi-directional cycle track via @torontomike #bikeTO” / Twitter

Dave Edwards on Twitter: “Complete garbage on the Viaduct” / Twitter

(1) Hannes Bretschneider on Twitter: “Hill on Christie St north of Davenport. Decided to take the wagon to preschool since we assumed 48h past the storm, surely the sidewalk would’ve been cleared.

(2) Colm on Twitter: “@alexbozikovic danforth bike lane at broadview right now! @PaulaFletcherTO #biketo” / Twitter

(2) Colm on Twitter: “@alexbozikovic even where bike lanes have supposedly been been cleared they are unusable- and a stark contrast to roads, where socalled plowing doesnt seek to involve leaving a base of snow” / Twitter

(2) Alex Bozikovic on Twitter: “Another 24 hours later, sidewalks on Christie St – densely populated and with a bus route – still not cleared. At some point, benefit of the doubt disappears.” / Twitter

(2) Lanrick Bennett Jr. on Twitter: “#GoByBikeTorontoDanforth Happy to see sidewalks cleared for the most part on Danforth but not bike lanes #WalkTO #BikeTO” / Twitter

(2) Lanrick Bennett Jr. on Twitter: “#GoByBikeTorontoDanforth Asking @Peter_Tabuns if he wouldn’t mind keeping an alert on this stretch of street for @AODAontario compliance.

(2) Bike Family on Twitter: “From my commute this morning. Not sure what happened here, but it looks like the plow decided to hop onto the side walk from the northbound Simcoe bike lane, just north of Adelaide. @311Toronto #bikeTO” / Twitter

(2) Bike Family on Twitter: “Otherwise, most of my ride looked like this, with snowbanks at intersections and driveways. Hoping that all bike lanes get a proper clearing sooner than later! #bikeTO #wintercycling #wintercommute” / Twitter

(7) anton lodder on Twitter: “two things: 1. this spot at Bloor + Spadina is… a #BikeTO. has not been attempted to be cleared. @311Toronto can it be cleared? 2. @TTChelps bus stop portion was cleared and the snow dumped in the bike lane? not where it should go, there are bylaws against doing so. why?!” / Twitter

(7) anton lodder on Twitter: “another example by @TTChelps . please train your snow clearing peeps how to not dump snow in public right-of-way!” / Twitter

(7) Ben Leow on Twitter: “Still made it to work on time. Hopping between cleared sidewalk and semi rideable sections of bike lane. It’s not like there is zero winter maintenance. It’s just not up to par.” / Twitter

(16) Willem Klumpenhouwer on Twitter: “This crap is why “nobody bikes in winter” There is no reason why the roadway is clear but the cycle lane isn’t other than blatant disregard for the heirarchy of transportation. #biketo” / Twitter

(1) Katie on Twitter: “@TTChelps wtf is this? Snowplow entries at your outdoor stops! They are all like this. The bus just left this man because he couldnt get to it.
