Snow route locations are easily identified by blue signs with a white snowflake. They help to improve traffic flow and make winter operations safer and more efficient.
Snow routes are declared when snowfall has reached a minimum of five centimetres of snow, any day of the week.
By declaring a snow route, roads can be plowed faster and better. Snow routes are plowed an average of 20 per cent faster than traditional plowing and they create increased road widths.
We will issue the declaration at 3 p.m. the day prior before the parking ban is in effect. When a snow ban is in effect there is no parking for a 24-hour period on the snow route. Vehicles that remain parked on snow routes during a temporary parking ban will be ticketed.
To find out when a snow route is declared, residents and business owners can sign up for email notifications, follow the City’s Facebook and Twitter, or visit Regina.ca/snowroutes.
