Digging out after heavy snowfall

Trevor Jones was clearing the sidewalk on Fraser Highway in downtown Langley City early Saturday morning, methodically scraping away the several centimetres of snow that had landed overnight.

“It’s a busy night for us,” said Jones, who works for B and C Commercial Snow Clearing.

Throughout the Langleys, snowed-in businesses and residents were digging out.

Township of Langley crews worked around the clock to clear local roads in the wake of the heavy snow, operations manager Brian Edey said, with all 22 of the Township’s trucks on the road.

City of Langley director of engineering Rick Bomhof says the municipality had a full stockpile of salt at the works yard and could get more in if needed.
