Snow route parking ban likely not needed for Tuesday's snowfall: city

Nov 19 2019, 4:38 pm

We’ve got little bit of good news this snowy Tuesday morning.

Even with the region falling under an Environment Canada snowfall warning, the City of Calgary “does not anticipate the need to call a snow route parking ban,” according to a 7 am tweet.

Which really is good news for Calgary’s drivers, as a snow route parking ban is infamous for creating a game of musical parking spots and leaving hundreds (if not thousands) with tickets.

The city’s post also noted that road crews were already at work on Calgary’s Priority 1 roads — Crowchild Trail and Glenmore — though that they expect the snowfall to only intensify later in the day.

As always, Calgarians are encouraged to drive with caution following, and during, a fresh snowfall, including watching for trouble spots such as bridge decks, ramps and hills, and in residential areas, as things may be icy as well as snowy.

Here’s a look at the city’s full statement, and we’ll be sure to keep you in the know if they decide to change their mind about the snow route parking ban:
