The City of Winnipeg will begin a snow-clearing operation of residential streets starting this Thursday.

Approximately 300 pieces of heavy equipment will be used for the operation and a residential parking ban will take effect at 7 a.m. on January 7.

Motorists are urged to park elsewhere when a residential street is scheduled for snow-clearing. Residents are being asked to check their snow zone letter to determine when city crews will visit their street.

People living in snow zones D, G, H, P, S will be the first to see plows in those zones until 7 p.m. Thursday.

Crews are scheduled to have all residential streets plowed by Saturday, January 9.

Vehicles parked in violation of the parking ban may receive a $150 ticket ($112.50 if paid early), and may be towed to a nearby street that is not scheduled to be plowed, or has already been cleared. Anyone towed can contact 311 to locate their vehicle.
