The City of Winnipeg will begin plowing residential streets on Thursday morning, thus putting a residential parking ban into place.

“The city is urging motorists to move their vehicles when their zone is scheduled to an off-street parking location such as a driveway, parking lot, or nearby street not currently scheduled for clearing,” said Ken Boyd, manager of the city’s Streets Maintenance Division. “This will help the plowing operation run smoothly and will prevent their vehicle from being ticketed and towed.”

Plows will be out on priority 3 streets at 7 a.m. on March 7 beginning in zones C, F, H, K, N, S, U. Plowing will continue into the weekend with the majority of work scheduled to be completed by Saturday at 7 p.m.

Vehicles parked in violation of the residential parking ban will receive a $150 ticket ($75 if paid early), and may be towed to a nearby street.
