Snow Routes

 
To help keep Lethbridge moving in the winter time, the City has designated key roadways in the city as Snow Routes and has begun implementing parking restrictions on the snow routes when it is necessary to plow the roads after a snowfall.  

In the event of abnormal or extreme winter weather in which roads need to be plowed, the City may declare that Snow Routes have been activated resulting in a Temporary Parking Ban being put in place for all, or specific Snow Routes. 

Once declared, residents will be notified by Public Service Announcements through:
  • Local media
  • The City's website
  • Twitter
  • Facebook
  • E-notifications of registered snow route residents

The Temporary Parking bans will be in effect for 72 hours, unless the declaration is terminated before 72 hours, or is extended for a further 72 hour period.

During the Temporary Parking Ban residents are asked to please park in another location until the ban is over so that snow plows can plow the snow to the parking lanes or boulevard.  You may still park on a snow route until a temporary parking ban is declared and once it is over.
 
Residents who park along snow routes are asked to watch for heavy snowfall and to be ready to remove their vehicles from the street when a temporary parking ban is declared. Residents will be able to register to be notified by email when a Snow Route Temporary Parking Ban has been declared. 

Thanks for helping us keep Lethbridge on the move!
