The city says in response to accumulations of snow today, a truck-plowing operation will start at 7 p.m. on main routes, bus routes and collector streets to improve the overall condition of roadways.
Sanding operations will also continue throughout the evening and overnight.
As part of this operation, front-end loaders will be used to clear intersections and bus stops. To aid snow-clearing efforts on major routes, the Declared Snow Route Parking Ban will be in effect starting tonight at midnight.
This ban prohibits parking on any snow route between the hours of midnight and 7 a.m. while in effect. Vehicles parked in violation of the Declared Snow Route Parking Ban will receive a $100 ticket and may be towed to the towing company’s compound.
The ban will be in place until snow clearing is completed --- the public will be notified when the Declared Snow Route Parking Ban is lifted.
The Declared Snow Route Parking Ban extends the Snow Route Parking Ban, which is currently in effect daily from 2 a.m. to 7 a.m., by two hours.
Sidewalk plowing on main routes will commence Thursday at 7 a.m.
Approximately 300 pieces of heavy equipment will be used for this snow-clearing operation, so motorists are reminded to drive to road conditions and to use extreme caution when driving near any snow clearing equipment or sanding trucks.
Snow clearing operations are undertaken in accordance with the City Council-approved Snow Clearing and Ice Control Policy, which can be found online at: www.winnipeg.ca/publicworks/Snow_Clearing_Policy/default.asp
