Edmonton makes it easier to know when streets to be plowed

The city is hoping its new online schedule will help Edmontonians know more precisely when their neighbourhood streets will be plowed.

Parking ban begins 7 a.m. Saturday

The city is hoping its new online schedule will help Edmontonians know more precisely when their neighbourhood streets will be plowed.

Residents can now enter their address into a new search tool to see when blading is scheduled, in progress or completed on their streets.

The city’s website previously listed neighbourhood blading status by neighbourhood.

The city warns that schedules, now to be updated twice daily, may change depending on the accumulation of snow and the number of parked vehicles on neighbourhood streets.

Residents are expected to remove their vehicles from neighbourhood streets so they streets can be bladed to a snowpack of five centimetres or less from curb to curb.

Blading is a 24-hour operation and may begin anytime on the scheduled date.

Residential plowing takes place after collector and arterial routes are plowed. The next seasonal parking ban begins at 7 a.m. Saturday.
