Crews will start plowing Winnipeg’s residential streets on Wednesday morning.
Truck plows went out Sunday night and continued working throughout the day. More than 200 pieces of equipment were working in the city on Monday morning, and around 400 are expected to be used during the operation.
A grader plowing operation is set to continue today, focusing on main routes, bus routes and collector streets, the city said in a news release.
A back lane plow will begin Tuesday morning at 7 a.m., the city said. Plowing of sidewalks and active transportation paths is also underway and will continue until complete.
A snow route parking ban is in effect in the city and will stay in effect until 7 a.m. Wednesday morning, the city said. The ban prohibits parking on snow routes from midnight to 7 a.m.
The city said plowing of residential streets will start Wednesday evening. A residential parking ban will take effect at 7 p.m. that day.
The city urges residents to confirm their snow zone to figure out when their street is scheduled for cleaning.
You can check your zone online, with the Know Your Zone app or by calling 311.
Vehicles parked on streets under the general snow route ban may receive a $100 ticket — $50 if paid early — and be towed to a compound.
If you’re parked on the street during a residential parking ban you could get a $150 ticket — $75 if paid early — and towed to another street. You can call 311 for help finding your vehicle if it gets towed.
