The City of Winnipeg has announced the declared snow route parking ban will be extended as a result of expected snowfall on Friday. The declared ban means cars can’t park in snow routes between 12 a.m. to 7 a.m.
The residential parking ban has been declared as well which means the plowing of residential streets will start up on Sunday, January 5, at 7:00 p.m. and continue until January 8.
