Winnipeg’s residential parking ban kicks in Tuesday

A residential parking ban will kick in Tuesday as the city digs out from this weekend’s dump of snow.

The blast of winter brought up to 12 cms of snow to parts of Winnipeg starting Friday, according to numbers from Environment Canada.

The snow led to an extended snow route parking ban on main routes, bus routes and collector streets over the weekend.

Plows are expected to finish their work in zone D from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday and zone E starting at 7 p.m. Thursday.

Missed streets will be cleared after city-wide plowing has been completed.

Those parked in violation of the ban might find a $150 ticket on their windshield and could see their vehicle towed to a nearby street that’s already been cleared.
