As everyone digs out from the latest snowfall, a reminder from the City of Winnipeg that a declared snow route parking ban will be in effect until further notice.

There is no parking on city designated snow routes between the hours of midnight and 7 a.m.

A city spokesperson said the directive will remain in place through Monday morning. The city will issue a statement when the declared parking ban is officially lifted.

Cars parked in violation of the ban will receive a $100 ticket and may be towed.

Crews continue to plow major routes, bus routes and collector streets today. Sidewalk plowing commenced Saturday night, while back lane snow clearing was scheduled to begin this morning.

Sanding operations also continue today.

Outside the city, the province reports most highways to the west, southwest and north of Winnipeg are partly snow covered. Most of the highways to the east and northeast of Winnipeg report good driving conditions.

Given the bitterly cold temperatures, caution is advised when heading outside of the city.

Meanwhile, travel in and out of the James Richardson International Airport appears to be running smoothly, with no major flight delays today.
