Snow Route Program
With no vehicles in the parking lane, a more thorough snow plow from curb-to-curb can be achieved. This improves traffic flow along the road and helps make winter operations more efficient. Snow routes in Regina cover 11 kilometres of our road network. The selected routes are typically difficult for equipment to plow efficiently, largely due to on-street parking:
- Winnipeg Street - Ross Avenue to Broadway Avenue
- Victoria Avenue - Pasqua Street to Albert Street
- Victoria Avenue - Broad Street to Winnipeg Street
- Toronto Street - Victoria Avenue to College Avenue
- College Avenue - Winnipeg Street to Arcola Avenue
- Broadway Avenue - Broad Street to Park Street
- 15th Avenue - Elphinstone Street to Winnipeg Street
- 14th Avenue - Toronto Street to Winnipeg Street
- 14th Avenue - Albert Street to Halifax Street
- 13th Avenue - Broad Street to Toronto Street
Snow route locations are easily identified by blue signs with a white snowflake.
Declaring a Snow Route
Snow Routes are declared:
- when snowfall has reached a minimum of 5 cm of snow
- at 3 p.m. the day before parking bans are in effect
- any day of the week
Residents are advised by email notification, on our Facebook and Twitter pages and on the website.
For example, when a Snow Route is declared at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, that means there is no parking on the route starting at 6 a.m. Wednesday until 6 a.m. Thursday.
When a snow route is declared, it means there is no parking for a 24-hour period. Vehicles that remain on the snow route during the temporary parking ban will be ticketed $120. Residents and businesses are free to return the following morning if there has been no notification before 3 p.m. the day before, no matter what the weather brings.
If you have a parking permit through the Saskatchewan Abilities Council's Parking Program for People with Disabilities, please contact us at 306-777-7000 to determine if we can work together to find an alternative.
