Snow removal efforts continue throughout Okotoks.

On Wednesday crews will be out on Banister Drive from Milligan Drive through to Crystal Shores Road.

Work will also resume on Cimarron Boulevard.

Transportation crews will continue with widening the secondary routes that were only cleared for one lane each way during the snow event, right to the curbs.

Residents can help crews by removing parked vehicles from the roadways to make the removal process more efficient.

Motorists are asked to slow down and drive with caution through the areas.
