Motorists still asked to exercise caution on city streets
Greater Sudbury Police reported there were no accidents due to icy road conditions, but said motorists should exercise caution.
By Sunday afternoon, main roads were cleared but some smaller residential streets remained icy.
As temperatures rose above 0 C Saturday, Sudbury received around 8 mm or rain, according to Environment Canada. The city asked residents were asked to clear their catch basins.
Some residential streets, such as Arnold Street in the city's south end, experienced minor flooding due to blocked catch basins.
“High flows, unsafe banks, melting ice or other factors that could be dangerous for recreational users such as anglers, canoeists, hikers, children, pets, etc. Flooding is not expected,” said a watershed conditions statement the Nickel District Conservation Authority issued over the weekend.
The conservation authority said water levels were normal Saturday and Sunday.
The Laurentian Nordic Ski Club cancelled all lessons and closed its cross-country ski trails near Laurentian University over the weekend due to the spring-like conditions.
“Given the currently fragile trail conditions, all members of the public are asked to not walk or use the trails, in an effort to prevent damage,” the club said in an email to members.
The city's ski hills, however, remained open Saturday and Sunday.
It was business as usual for Adanac Ski Hill and Lively Ski Hill, said a representative at the Adanac chalet.
