The City of Winnipeg lifted its residential parking ban at 7:01 a.m. on Wednesday, but plows could still return to some streets.

Any streets that were missed during the initial plow will be revisited in the coming days. Plows in some areas found themselves behind schedule due to the frigid temperatures, which broke down pieces of snow-clearing equipment used by the city’s contractor.

If some streets in a snow zone have been missed or only partially cleared, citizens are asked to call 311.

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.

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, 2014.
