Winnipeg, MB â The Declared Snow Route Parking Ban that was put into effect at 12:00 a.m., Tuesday, February 9 has now been lifted. The Declared Snow Route Parking Ban is an extension of the Annual Snow Route Parking Ban, which is currently in effect daily from 2:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. until March 1, 2016.

A Residential Parking Ban began today, Wednesday, February 10 at 7:00 a.m. to facilitate plowing of residential streets.

Residential streets in snow zones E, I, M, O, S, and U will be plowed today from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m.

Citizens are urged to confirm their snow zone letter in order to determine when their residential street is scheduled for clearing. You can find your snow zone with our Address Lookup Tool at or by contacting 311 (available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by phone at 311, or by email at ). Citizens are encouraged to find out their snow zone letter well in advance of the start of the residential plow and to make alternate parking arrangements if they park on the street.

Avoid a ticket and tow
Residents are urged to find an alternate place to park such as an off-street driveway or parking lot, or a nearby street that is not currently scheduled for plowing. This will help the plowing operation run smoothly and will prevent you from being ticketed and towed.

Vehicles parked in violation of the Residential Parking Ban may be towed to a nearby street that is not scheduled to be plowed, or has already been cleared. If you believe your vehicle may have been towed due to the Residential Parking Ban, please contact 311 for assistance in locating it.

Stay back, stay safe
More than 400 pieces of heavy equipment will be used for this snow clearing operation so motorists are reminded to drive to road conditions and to use extreme caution when driving near any snow clearing equipment or sanding trucks.

Parking ban notification
The City offers free email and Twitter notifications which advise subscribers when a parking ban goes into effect. To sign up for notifications, or for more information about all winter parking bans visit or contact 311.
