The Calgary Roads Department has made some important and significant changes to its Snow Route parking ban program for the upcoming winter season.
Roads evaluates the Snow Route parking ban program every year to identify areas for improvement and build best practices. This 2014-2015 winter season, changes are being made to Snow Routes to better balance the need for on-street parking options and better align with Calgary Transit’s bus routes.
Please see this updated map to find out how the changes impact your neighbourhood in Ward 7. Please note that some segments have been removed and some have been added. If a snow route is removed from the parking ban network, it will still receive snow and ice control however it will be no longer benefit from curb-to-curb snow removal that is possible when a parking ban is called.
New Snow Routes will be marked by blue and white snowflake signs. Work is currently underway to remove signage from snow routes that are being discontinued.
Affected residents will be notified of the changes by mailed letters and Calgary.ca has been updated with details and maps. The easiest way for residents to find this information is to visit Calgary.ca and search Snow Route parking bans.
Calgary Parking Authority is responsible for enforcing the Snow Route parking ban.
