City’s first Snow Route declared

Sat Nov 04 14:27:16 CST 2017

The City of Regina has declared its first Snow Route for the pilot program. This means there is no parking along designated snow routes for a 24-hour period to allow crews to clear these primary roads from curb-to-curb, improving traffic flow along the busy roadways. As well, this will help ensure roads are passable for emergency response vehicles.

Effective 6 a.m. Sunday, November 5 there is no parking along the Snow Route until 6 a.m. Monday, November 6.

The Snow Routes are:

-       Victoria Avenue between Broad Street and Winnipeg Street

-       Winnipeg Street between Victoria Avenue and College Avenue

-       College Avenue between Winnipeg Street and Arcola Avenue

Blue signs with a white snowflake help identify where there is no parking during the 24-hour ban. Vehicles which remain parked on snow routes during a temporary parking ban will be ticketed.

Residents and local businesses are encouraged to sign up for email notifications, follow the City’s Facebook and Twitter, or go online to Regina.ca/snowroutes to find out when a snow route is declared.
