Residential Overnight Parking Ban lifted

WINNIPEG - JANUARY 21, 2004 - The Residential Overnight Parking Ban has been lifted effective 06:01 a.m. this morning. The ban had prohibited parking between midnight and 06:00 a.m., on all streets not designated as snow routes. In total 2,263 parking tickets were issued since the ban was put in place last Sunday at midnight.

“Close to 90 per cent of residential streets have been cleared as of this morning,” says Bruce McPhail, manager of streets maintenance, for the Public Works Department. “The balance of residential streets will be completed by early tomorrow morning.”

McPhail says the original target for completing residential streets was early this evening, but last night’s seven cm. snowfall required shifting some crews over to truck plowing of Priority I (Regional ) streets and Priority II (Collector) streets.

Crews are also plowing country roads and other drifted areas as well as all categories of sidewalks.

Plowing of back lanes will be limited to drifted locations only.

Hauling of snow from bridges and streets where storage capacity is limited, as well as removal of high piles at intersections on major routes and at schools is ongoing.

Sanding of streets will continue around the clock as long as required.
