Highways and roads are plowed in a priority schedule. The priority is determined by the standards set by the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure. Priority is given to numbered highways and school bus routes with other roads frequency determined by winter traffic volumes.
Argo is not responsible for roads within Municipality boundaries.
Sweeping starts at the end of winter starting at the lower elevations. If debris is spilled on a road please call the emergency number to report the spill.
Argo is not responsible for line painting in the highway maintenance contract.
Line painting of ministry roads is contracted out separately by the ministry. To learn more please visit http://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/transportation/transportation-infrastructure/contracting-to-transportation/highway-bridge-maintenance/pavement-marking
