Some roads in Spallumcheen may remain unplowed for longer than usual.

That’s because the township is dealing with mechanical issues to three of its plow trucks at the same time, according to a public notice issued Thursday, Jan. 13.

“The dedicated staff have already repaired one plow truck and are working to repair the remaining two as fast as possible,” the notice reads.

For the time being, delays with snow removal on Priority 2 roads are to be expected.

There is no snow in Environment Canada’s forecast for Friday and roads should be in good driving condition thanks to above-freezing temperatures. However, light snow is expected Friday night and there is a 40 per cent chance of flurries or wet flurries on Saturday.
