Parking ban Notification for Wednesday January 4th Midnight!

City of Winnipeg Public Works

Declared Snow Route Parking Ban in effect starting tonight at midnight
 
Parking prohibited on snow routes from midnight to 7:00 a.m.

In order to facilitate a major clearing operation on main routes, bus routes and collector streets, a Declared Snow Route Parking Ban will be in effect starting tonight at midnight (Wednesday, January 4 at 12:00 a.m.).

The Declared Snow Route Parking Ban extends the Annual Snow Route Parking Ban by two hours, prohibiting parking on any designated snow route between midnight and 7:00 a.m.

Due to further accumulations of snow combined with high winds, City crews are continuing to sand and plow main routes, bus routes and collector streets today. This evening, the snow clearing operation will be expanded to utilize motor graders and front-end loaders to improve the overall condition of the Priority 1 and Priority 2 street network.

Sidewalks on main routes and active transportation paths adjacent to main routes are also being cleared until completed. Back lane clearing will start Wednesday morning at 7:00 a.m. and will continue until completed.

Crews are continuing with the major snow hauling operation on main routes to improve snow storage capacity on the boulevard, as well as with high-pile relocation to improve sightlines at intersections.

Avoid a ticket and tow
Vehicles parked in violation of the Declared Snow Route Parking Ban may receive a $100 ticket ($50 if paid early), and may be towed to the towing company’s compound. The Declared Snow Route Parking Ban will be in place until snow clearing is completed and the public will be notified when the ban is lifted. At such time, the Annual Snow Route Parking Ban will continue to be in effect from 2:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m.
