As well, crews will be doing free blowing in the area off Woodward Avenue, and if time allows, the area of Marlin Drive and Daniels Drive. Snow removal will take place in the Old East. The pothole patrol will be filling holes with cold mix on Waterloo and Smythe Streets, and checking on streets City-wide.
