Snow Plows Roll Out on Winnipeg Streets

Snow Plow

Snow plows hit Winnipeg streets late Thursday night to deal with the accumulation of snow that fell on city streets.

Grader plows are focusing on regional streets and sand will be applied in some areas where required. Collector and bus routes are also receiving attention to improve sight lines in school zones, at bus stops, crosswalks and lane/alley intersections. Once regional streets are plowed, graders will move to collector and bus routes.

The city says residential streets and sidewalks are being monitored and may be plowed in problem areas where drifting has occurred. Back lanes will be plowed beginning Saturday at 7 a.m.

To aid snow clearing efforts on major routes, the declared snow route parking ban will be in effect starting 12 a.m. on Saturday, January 25.

The annual snow route parking ban remains in effect daily on streets designated as snow routes from 2 a.m. to 7 a.m. until March 1.
