While crews in the City of Estevan are making their cabs into living quarters, operators with the Ministry of Highways and Transport are in no way slouching off, either.
"Crews have been working around the clock. They'll continue to work at some clean up, which may take a few more days, depending on the weather," shared spokesperson Steve Shaheen.
"A lot of the roads or highways in the Weyburn and Estevan region would be classified as that 'winter conditions exist', but we are seeing some conditions improve to 'seasonal driving' around the Carlyle area."
He also once again reiterated their common warning released to motorists regarding the working snowplows.
"When we clear snow off the roads it can create that mini blizzard effect, especially in windy conditions. Due to that snow zone, a motorists' visibility may be limited. We often say to just stay back, stay safe. The snowplows will pull over about every 10 kilometers or when safe to do so, in order to pass."
"We've also been hearing from the public and other stakeholders like the RCMP that the existing laws are not clear. There's legislation before the Assembly that would require drivers to slow to 60 when snowplows are pulled over and have their blue and amber lights engaged," Shaheen added.
"Not only is the safety of the plow operators at risk, but also the motorists who decide to pull out. We just want everybody to be safe out there, be patient, and slow down for road conditions."
