Parking ban for major roads starts Monday night


Parking will be banned on major roads starting Monday night as crews clean up the latest snowfall.

Edmonton is activating its Phase 1 parking ban at 7 p.m. after the region received 10 to 20 centimetres of snow.

"We have experienced blowing and drifting of snow in addition to the significant accumulation in the last 24 hours, and a Phase 1 parking ban is necessary to ensure the major roadways are cleared and safe for all vehicles," said the City of Edmonton's Val Dacyk. "Keeping major roadways cleared of parked vehicles is essential for crews to clear roads. We anticipate the parking ban to remain in effect for three to five days."

Crews will focus on downtown Edmonton hills. For a live look at the location of each plow, click here.
