#JustCurious What is a snow route?
REGINA -- Welcome to Winter!
Over the next few months you may hear that a “snow route” has been declared.
The goal of a snow route is to improve traffic flow and make Winter operations a little more safe and efficient. In other words, they want to clear the street so that you can get where you’re going!
A snow route is declared when snowfall has reached a minimum of five centimetres. Once it’s declared by the Mayor or an official designate from City Hall, there is no parking along the identified sections of road for a 24 hour period. You’ll see the blue sign with a white snowflake indicating a snow route. They cover 16 kilometers of road and are typically those that are more difficult for a plough to work through.
If you leave your vehicle parked there, you’ll get a ticket. Nobody wants that.
