Winnipeg, MB - The City of Winnipeg continues to encourage residents to limit travel to essential trips only. Sunday’s weather event brought approximately 23 cm of snow along with high winds into Boxing Day. Majority of snow fell in an eight-hour window. High winds produced major drifting. Residential streets continue to have significant accumulations.
A residential plow is being planned and a start time will be announced as soon as possible. The City is focusing on completing P1 (regional) and P2 (collector/bus routes) to ensure essential services are available.
Due to winter weather conditions, some City of Winnipeg departments are experiencing service delays and interruptions.
Winnipeg Transit is anticipating that there will continue to be some delays and service disruptions for Tuesday, December 27. We recommend that Transit users allow for extra travel time and to check their schedules at winnipegtransit.com before travelling.
