Snow Route Parking Ban to be lifted at 5 p.m.

Calgary - The first Snow Route Parking Ban of 2019 will be lifted today at 5 p.m. 

Although Calgary received some light snow overnight, crews remained on track and have finished clearing Priority 2 streets (collector roads and bus routes deemed Snow Routes) nearly an entire day ahead of schedule.

Roads Maintenance Manager, Bill Biensch says crews will continue with The City’s Seven-Day Snow Clearing Plan and operations will move on to residential routes where they’ll knock down ruts and lay down material including sand and gravel. “We’d like to thank everyone for their patience and especially those who moved their vehicles to help us get the job done.”

As of 12 p.m. today, the Calgary Parking Authority says they’ve issued a total of 1,898 number tickets.

“Our goal is 100 per cent compliance with every parking ban,” says CPA Enforcement Coordinator, Ben Pisch. “Our fines increased this year to $120 and the numbers show this was an incentive to move vehicles off the street.”It is the Calgary Parking Authority’s main objective to help keep roads safe and accessible for Calgarians.”
