WINNIPEG — The snow route parking ban has been extended after the city received an accumulation of snow overnight.

The extended ban is now in effect at midnight until 7 a.m. — two hours earlier than it would normally begin.

City crews will be out at 7 p.m. tonight to clear main routes, bus routes, and collector streets.

Streets designated as snow routes receive priority snow-clearing. Vehicles parked along such roadways during a ban can receive a $100 ticket ($75 if paid early) and could also be towed.

The extended snow route parking ban will remain in effect until otherwise stated, at which time it will return to being from 2 a.m. to 7 a.m.

To find out if you live on or near a snow route, enter your address into the city’s website.
