Print Email

Do-It-Yourself grit boxes, provided by the City of Ottawa, are installed at a few key spots around town. These yellow boxes are located close to steep hills and in areas where there are many pedestrians, seniors, and persons using mobility devices. 

Residents are encouraged to spread the rock salt around on slippery spots on sidewalks or other problem areas.

Available in Old Ottawa South:

  • Echo Drive at Avenue Road (by the stairs to the canal) 
  • Bank & Sunnyside
  • Riverdale & Sunnyside
  • Bronson Avenue Bridge (by the stairs from the bridge to the canal) 

Details about winter maintenance are available on the City of Ottawa website.
