Q: Why should I call 311?

311 is Edmonton’s non-emergency phone line for City government information and services. It provides residents, businesses and visitors with ease of access through a central point of contact for their city needs. It helps the City of Edmonton to recognize and prioritize actions based on the number of similar complaints. It also helps to track your inquiry by providing you with a reference number.

Connect to 311 on-line here to see how this service can work for you.

Please remember that 311 does not replace 911. If you have an emergency situation, call 911 for assistance. The non-emergency number for the Police is 780-423-4567.

Q: When will my neighbourhood be cleared of snow?

For a full explanation of Edmonton’s winter street clearing plans, including a link to sign up for email alerts on all road maintenance work in Edmonton click here  This season, areas that for whatever reason could not be completed on their designated days will be finished over the course of the weekend instead of having crews return the following week. Roadway Maintenance will send a Public Service Announcement and post online which neighbourhoods were not completed and where crews will be returning on Saturday and Sunday to finish.

  • Blading is on the same day of the week all winter in your area.
  • Your snow day will be on the schedule when you use the address lookup tool.
  • Crews can be on your street any time during the 24 hours designated.
  • Make sure they have complete and clear access to the roads during your area’s snow day.

Neighbourhoods are bladed based on their maintenance area which is different from neighbourhood boundaries. You can use the maps to find out what your maintenance area and week day is for neighbourhood blading.

We’ve included a map of all Ward 1 neighbourhoods for easy reference with a list outlining each area below.
