The city is reminding residents of the snow route parking ban which allows city workers access for snow removal on residential streets.

As the city continues to plow and remove snow from its designated snow routes, it is reminding residents that a parking ban will take effect Thursday night and Friday night at midnight, to allow crews to do their jobs.

The bans will last until 7–8 a.m, depending on the particulars of the route.

It's an extension of yesterday's ban, the first snow route parking ban of the season. The no-parking routes are mainly city arterials. They are:

  • Rosser Avenue from 13th Street East to 34th Street
  • Princess Avenue from 13th Street East to Willier Drive
  • Ninth Street and Tenth Street from Princess Avenue to Pacific Avenue
  • Louise Avenue from 13th Street to 18th Street.

The city says that snow clearing should be finished by the afternoon of Saturday, Dec. 7, after which the parking bans will be lifted until the next snowfall. Vehicles that remain parked on designated snow routes during overnight snow clearing risk being ticketed or towed.

After the weekend, city crews will continue to clear streets on an as-needed basis; however, there are no plans for a city-wide (residential) snow clearing event at this time.

Many of the city's main streets are actually under the purview of the province. Provincial plows are responsible for clearing: 

  • 18th Street
  • Victoria Avenue, west from First Street
  • First Street, north from Richmond Avenue
  • Richmond Avenue, east from 18th Street
  • Trans-Canada Highway
  • Grand Valley Road
  • Veterans Way

There are also a number of private streets inside the city that are the responsibility of the developer or the property owner.

For up-to-the-minute information on overnight parking bans, the public can call the City of Brandon’s parking ban hotline at 204-729-2500. The hotline is updated several hours prior to a snow-clearing event and then once a snow-clearing event has been completed.

Brandon residents can also subscribe to free email alerts of when overnight parking bans are to be implemented by visiting brandon.ca/departments/operations/streets-a-roads/snow-routes.
