Edmonton motorists are being told to remove their vehicles from bus routes and collector roads as city crews begin  removing windrows.

Targeted parking bans will be in effect only on routes where windrow removal is taking place.

Those roads will be marked with temporary ‘No Parking’ signs at least 24 hours before work begins.

The windrow removal location schedule is available on the City of Edmonton website.

The city will ticket and tow vehicles that are not moved while windrows are being removed, but once the snow is removed, citizens can again park their cars on the street.

Removing the windrows will take about three weeks.
