Parking bans during snow removal
Avoid a tow! There are two types of parking bans in Sherwood Park neighbourhoods: snow route parking bans and residential street parking restrictions.
Knowing the difference—and which signs to watch for—could save you from a costly ticket and tow.
Snow route parking bans affect collector roads marked with permanent signs that state “snow route when declared”. Learn more about when a snow route parking ban is declared, how to hear about it and where you can park when snow removal is underway.
These restrictions affect all other residential streets and cul-de-sacs. Temporary orange signs are placed in each neighbourhood with dates for snow clearing in the area. Learn more about when these streets are cleared and where to park.
Not sure where to park?
Our winter priorities map is a web-based, interactive map allowing users to see their road classification/priority.
If you live on a Green line (Priority 3 - Snow Route), you can park on roads marked with Yellow lines (Priority 4 - Residential Clearing) during a snow route parking ban.
If you live on a Yellow line (Priority 4 - Residential Clearing), you can park on roads marked with Green line (Priority 3 - Snow Route) during residential snow clearing.
