Snow route parking bans
Snow route parking ban NOT in progress
Parking is permitted on all collector roads (priority 3) in Sherwood Park.
Snow route parking bans affect collector roads, which are marked with snow route when declared signs year round. Collector roads are classified as Priority 3 under the Winter Maintenance Policy(123.9 KB) and are cleared when the snow accumulation reaches 15 to 21 centimetres.
- Parking bans will be declared a minimum of 24 hours before parking restrictions are enforced.
- Remove vehicles from the street or park on residential streets without snow route signs.
- It may take up to five days to clear the snow.

Please remove vehicles from the road
Vehicles need to be removed from the street to allow for safe and efficient snow removal. Vehicles left on the street during the parking ban will be issued a $250 ticket.
Not sure where to park?
During a parking ban you may park on all other residential streets in your neighbourhood that are not marked with “snow route when declared” signs.
Parking is permitted on snow routes again after the snow has been removed.
