A snow route parking ban will go into effect Saturday night to plow main routes, bus routes and collector streets.
The City of Winnipeg is expecting to spend $2 million on this latest cleanup, which will begin at 12 a.m. on Sunday, January 27.
This ban prohibits parking on any street designated as a snow route between midnight and 7 a.m. Vehicles parked in violation of the ban will receive a $100 ticket ($50 if paid early), and may be towed.
Sidewalk plows are currently clearing sidewalks city-wide, with a focus on sidewalks on main routes and bus routes and collector streets, followed by sidewalks on residential streets.
Approximately 300 pieces of equipment will be used.
