Seasonal parking ban comes into effect late Sunday night
The City of Edmonton has declared a seasonal parking ban effective at 00:01 on Monday, March 5.
When more than 10 centimetres of snow has fallen, a parking ban is declared so that city crews can complete their work quickly and efficiently.
“The minute it’s Monday, please have your car off the designated roads,” said Janet Tecklenborg, Director of Infrastructure Operations with the City of Edmonton.
Residents are asked to remove their cars from major arterial, collector and marked roads. “We know that Edmontonians have places to go, and we rely on their co-operation to keep our city on the move,” she continued.
City crews are focusing on clearing bus routes, arterial, and collector roads. Vehicles parked on designated parking ban routes on Monday will be ticketed and towed at the owner’s expense. Seasonal parking ban routes are clearly marked.
The parking ban will remain in effect until the City has declared it over. Even if plows have cleared a road, the ban remains in effect until the City’s declaration. Crews and equipment will be working 24 hours a day until roads are clear. Drivers are reminded to drive for winter conditions, and asked to give crews and equipment room to do their work.
