Strange snow removal method

I’ve seen a strange snow removal method several times since I’ve lived here.  Today, I actually bothered to take pictures.  Anyway, they create medians of snow in the middle of the street and then they close a block at a time to remove these medians.  It was a bit annoying getting to work this morning as I had to make a U-turn because of the snow median.  At least, that section of the road wasn’t closed yet.  My staff claim that this method is common in many communities in Saskatchewan but it still seems bizarre to me!
