LETHBRIDGE – The City of Lethbridge has resumed public transit service and is encouraging drivers to avoid making unnecessary trips as local roads are under heavy drifts of snow.

On Monday morning, the City had all available staff and equipment working around the clock to maintain priority 1 snow plowing routes. The majority of priority 1 routes are considered passable but drivers who do brave the roads are asked to allow extra travel time and to ensure their vehicles are properly equipped to face the conditions.  Motorists should have warm clothes and a shovel at their disposal.

Public transit service resumed in Lethbridge at noon Wednesday with limited routes.

The City pushed back the opening times of Stan Siwik, Nicholas Sheran and Fritz Sick pool to noon and all Lethbridge Public Libraries were closed Monday.

The City's landfills and recycling depots will be closed Monday. Garbage and recycling collection will resume Wednesday, October 2 with pickups to take place one day behind the regular scheduled collection date.

Lethbridge College campus was closed Monday and the school's Orange Shirt Day ceremony has been rescheduled for Wednesday, October 2.

It was a snow day for some students in Lethbridge on Monday but the schools that were closed will return to normal operations on Tuesday.
