Trail clearing

Manage icy conditions with rock chips

Crews are in the process of restocking the green community chip bins. If one has run low please report it through County Connect.

Central locations remain fully stocked. Rock chips at these locations are in a large pile – sometimes it looks like a mound of sand or is partially covered in snow. Signs have been added to help identify them.

Central locations include:

  • 53129 Range Road 222 
  • Ardrossan Recreation Complex 
  • Broadmoor Golf Course 
  • Broadview Enviroservice Station 
  • Centennial Park 
  • Elk Island Administration Office (west side off Range Road 231) 
  • Glen Allan Recreation Centre 
  • Log Cabin on Fir Street 
  • Salisbury Composite High School (north side off Festival Way) 
  • Strathcona Athletic Park 

Exact locations can be viewed on the chip bin map

After a snowfall, Strathcona County follows a priority system for clearing trails and sidewalks in Sherwood Park and rural hamlets. 

The County works to clear all priorities within five or six days, but it can take up to eight days from the start of a snowfall to clear all trails and sidewalks.
