The Tow Plow – Clearing More Lanes in Less Time

If you’re driving in the Castlegar or Golden during the winter months, keep an eye out for tow plows being used by our maintenance contractor in the area.

A tow plow is a trailer that attaches behind a traditional plow truck. The plow truck driver can angle the tow plow into the next lane, making it possible to clear two lanes in a single pass.

While the trailer may look wide and difficult to handle, the tow plow is more responsive than a traditional wing plow. The operator can quickly manoeuvre around obstacles on the road, such as signs or parked cars or bus stops. And of course, the new plows have met all the requirements for safe and legal use on our highways.
