Crews respond to Edmonton’s first major snowfall of the season; Seasonal Parking Ban to Take Effect December 4
The city of Edmonton has experienced over 24 hours of continuous snowfall.
To keep Edmonton moving, city crew numbers were doubled to clear snow from roads, trails, bus shelters and bike lanes since snow began to fall.
Approximately 200 plows and graders supported by 250 crew members are currently on the roads.
People will see groups of snow plows or graders moving slowly through major and arterial roads. Please be patient with crews and your fellow citizens and drive to conditions.
A snow event – parking ban – will not be decided on until the snow stops. We encourage the public to look for seasonal parking signs and be prepared to find different parking if a snow event is declared. In the event of a parking ban, the City will provide at least 8 hours notification.
The General Supervisor of Infrastructure Operations with the City of Edmonton, Andrew Grant, has announced this early that a parking ban that will take effect Wednesday, December 4th at 1 a.m.
