News Releases

March 8, 2018

Reminder: Residential Parking Ban in effect until Saturday at 7 a.m.

Residential streets in snow zones E, G, J, L, P, Q, T will be plowed from 7 p.m. this evening until 7 a.m. Friday

Released: 9:46 a.m.

Winnipeg, MB – The Residential Parking Ban remains in effect until Saturday morning. Plowing in zones D, F, H, K, N, R and U is currently underway. Plowing will take place on residential streets in snow zones E, G, J, L, P, Q, T starting at 7 p.m. this evening continuing until 7 a.m. Friday, March 9.

Residents are urged to move their vehicles when their residential street is scheduled for plowing. This will help the snow clearing operation run smoothly and will prevent you from being ticketed and towed. Citizens are encouraged to visit, use the Know Your Zone app or contact 311 to confirm their snow zone letter.

Missed residential streets
If some streets in a snow zone have been missed or only partially cleared, crews will return in the coming days to address outstanding snow clearing requirements. In the meantime, residents can park on their street since the Residential Parking Ban only applied during the scheduled 12-hour period. When plowing crews return, no additional parking restrictions will be imposed. However, residents are still encouraged to move their vehicles should they notice that their street is about to be plowed.

Avoid a ticket and tow
Vehicles parked in violation of the Residential Parking Ban may receive a $150 ticket ($75 if paid early), and 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.

Think safety this winter - Stay Back, Stay Safe
Approximately 400 pieces of heavy equipment will be used for this snow clearing operation so motorists are reminded to drive to winter road conditions at all times and to use extreme caution when driving near any plowing or sanding equipment.

Public invited to provide input on Route 90 improvements

Released: 1:15 p.m.

Winnipeg, MB – The City is inviting the public to share their input to help develop a preferred design for the widening of Route 90 between Taylor Avenue and Ness Avenue that will build on the recommendations of the 2012 Route 90 Transportation Planning Study (TPS). The route needs to be upgraded to address current and future traffic volumes, to accommodate new and future redevelopment, and to meet the needs of pedestrians, cyclists, and transit users.

Since the completion of the 2012 TPS, a number of developments have occurred that need to be considered before the project can move into the detailed design phase, including:

  • Updated traffic information and forecasts;
  • The Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies approved by City Council in 2015;
  • New accessibility requirements for pedestrian ramps;
  • Updates and future planning for Winnipeg Transit;
  • Updates to the surrounding transportation network;
  • New residential, business, and industrial development within the project area;
  • Changing conditions of roadways, bridges, and water mains;
  • New information on the Kapyong lands redevelopment; and
  • Updates to the St. James Bridges and interchanges at Portage Avenue and Academy Road in light of bridge condition and to improve access, safety and visibility.

The online survey is the first of several upcoming opportunities that the public will have to provide input to the project team. The survey is available on the project website from March 9 to April 6, 2018.
