Snow route parking ban

Lifted Wednesday, Dec. 5

Snow clearing update

Collector road snow clearing is complete and the snow route parking ban has been lifted; residential road snow clearing is currently underway.

Parking restrictions apply on residential roads where snow clearing is not yet complete. See the snow clearing schedule and monitor progress on our residential snow clearing webpage.

With over 21 cm of snow in the past 48 hours, a snow route parking ban has been declared in Sherwood Park. County crews will start clearing collector roads at 12 noon on Monday, Dec. 3. The parking ban applies to  collector roads (29.8 KB)  marked with permanent snow route signs.

Residents are asked to remove their vehicles from the street to allow for safe and efficient snow removal. In order to address the significant amount of snow, crews have begun snow clearing more quickly than a typical snow route parking ban.

Due to the short notice, any vehicles left on the road will be towed, but not ticketed, for the first 24 hours. Beginning 12 noon on Tuesday, Dec. 4, tickets will be issued for vehicles that have not been removed from collector roads during the parking ban (as per normal procedures).

Parking is permitted after the snow has been removed.

NOTE: This parking ban does not apply to residential roads. The County is currently planning for snow clearing on residential roads once collector roads are complete.

Frequently asked questions

  • 1. When is the snow route parking ban in effect?

    The County has declared a parking ban in effect as of 12 noon on Monday, Dec. 3. Snow clearing will begin at that time.

  • 2. How long will it take to clear the snow on collector roads?

    We expect snow clearing on collector roads to take two or three days, depending on whether there is more snowfall.

  • 3. When do I need to remove my vehicle from the street?

    Residents are asked to remove their vehicles from these roads as soon as possible. A typical parking ban gives residents 24 hours to remove vehicles from the street before snow clearing begins. Due to the short notice of the parking ban, any vehicles left on the road in the first 24 hours will be towed, but not ticketed. Any vehicles left on the road after 12 noon on Tuesday, Dec. 4, will be towed and ticketed, as per normal procedures.

  • 4. Where should I park?

    You may park on all other residential streets in your neighbourhood that are not marked with “snow route when declared” signs. Once the parking ban is lifted, be sure to move your vehicle off of the residential streets in preparation for residential snow removal to begin once collector roads are complete.

  • 5. If my car is towed during a parking ban where will it be taken?

    Vehicles are usually towed to a nearby residential street where parking is permitted (does not have a “snow route when declared” sign). Contact Enforcement Services at 780-467-7741 to find out the location of your vehicle.

  • 6. Is the County clearing residential roads too?

    This parking ban does not apply to residential roads. The County is currently planning for snow clearing on residential roads once collector roads are complete.

  • 7. If I leave my car on the street, will I receive a ticket and tow?

    Due to the short notice, any vehicles left on the road will be towed, but not ticketed, for the first 24 hours. Beginning 12 noon on Tuesday, Dec. 4, tickets will be issued for vehicles that have not been removed from collector roads during the parking ban, as per normal procedures.
