Parking bans during snow removal

Freezing rain update - January 17

Freezing rain continues to impact winter maintenance operations. With crews focused on managing icy road conditions, please note the following:

  • Residential snow clearing will be delayed. Windrowing will continue, but some removal of windrows from the road will be delayed up to 48 hours. The clearing order has been updated with new dates and completed areas. Residential clearing is now expected to be complete by January 20.
  • Chip bins have run low and will not be restocked at this time. Central chip locations will remain fully stocked. Find a central location near you.
  • All available resources are focused on managing icy conditions in rural and urban areas, with high-speed, high-volume roads as the first priority. Take extra care on all roadways, sidewalks, trails and parking lots.

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

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.

Residential street parking restrictions

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.
