EDMONTON-- A seasonal parking ban will be in effect Sunday at 11 p.m. after the Edmonton area received a hefty dump of snow over the weekend.
The system blanketed the city with approximately 15 cm of snow, according to a meteorologist with Environment Canada.
The storm also created havoc on roads around the city, with EPS receiving nearly 300 reports of collisions since 7 p.m. Friday to noon Sunday.
The ban will be lifted when work on all major roads and residential bus routes is finished.
Vehicles parked in areas with a seasonal parking ban sign could be fined or towed.
The city is also reminding Edmontonians the ban remains in effect until it’s declared over, and to not park on a plowed bus route until the ban is lifted.
A minimum eight-hour notice is given prior to a seasonal parking ban.
Seasonal parking bans are declared during large snowfalls between Nov. 5 and March 15.
Since Friday, the city has deployed approximately 100 plows to clear roads.
