Chestermere's Spring Storm Response

storm update

Update: 11: 10 a.m. 

Fire, Police and roads crews worked through the night and plow crews will be continuing road maintenance work today. Alberta Transportation has removed the dangerous conditions alert for Highway 1 and it is open in both directions. There is bare pavement evident but icy and snow covered shoulders.  

The Environment Canada Blizzard Warning is over, but most roads have snow or ice on them and blowing snow remains an issue in some areas. If you are driving today, please use extreme caution, especially since many residents have changed out their snow tires.  


Update: 3:40 a.m. Highway 1 from Chestermere to Calgary has been reopened. Highway 1 from Chestermere to Bassano remains closed until further notice. Thanks for your patience.


1:25 a.m. Update:

The City of Chestermere has been working to coordinate responses to the spring storm that pummeled southern Alberta yesterday. 

“Alberta Transportation has closed Highway 1 due to very dangerous conditions. Snow is still blowing and visibility is very reduced,” says Fire Chief Brian Pomrenke. “Dozens of vehicles have hit the ditch – we have heard estimates as high as 70 vehicles.” 

Wind gusts are estimated around 50km/h at this time and snowfall is expected to continue until 3am. 

City road crews are also working to clear priority 1 routes within the City limits. 

Earlier this evening, portions of the City of Chestermere were without power for approximately 2 hours. Fortis Alberta worked with Altalink and restored power to the community before 10pm. 

Updates throughout the evening have been posted to www.chestermere.ca/alertswww.chestermere.ca/facebook, and www.chestermere.ca/twitter
