Winnipeg parking ban lifted, highways start to reopen after spring snowstorm

After a days-long spring storm that closed businesses, schools and left many Manitobans stuck at home, some Manitoba highways are now open.

In Winnipeg, the extended snow route parking ban, in place since Thursday, has now been lifted, according to the city.

The city’s latest snow update said a major city-wide snow clearing operation is in progress beginning with priority one streets. Those include regional streets and adjacent sidewalks along with active transportation paths. Those will be followed by priority two streets like bus routes and collector streets.

The city said sanding and salting of roads and bridges is ongoing as required.
