The Halifax Regional Municipality is asking residents to refrain from parking tonight on select streets in downtown Halifax and Dartmouth to assist with targeted snow clearing efforts.
Late this evening and throughout the nightsnow removal will take place on the following streets:
- Hollis Street (Cogswell to South streets)
- Gottingen (North Street to Rainnie Drive)
- Summer Street (University Avenue to Sackville Street)
- Argyle Street (all)
- Prince Street (all)
- Sackville Street (all)
- Blowers Street (all)
- Alderney Drive (King Street to Park Avenue)
- Ochterloney Street (Alderney Drive to Edward Street)
- Queen Street (Alderney Drive to Edward Street)
- Portland Street (Alderney Drive to Prince Street)
As done in previous years, targeted snow clearing will periodically take place overnight in the days following weather events. Removing the snow from these areas will help maintain parking in the business districts and ensure emergency vehicles, buses and other traffic can safely access the streets throughout the winter.
Residents are reminded that under Section 139 of the Motor Vehicle Act, vehicles can be ticketed and towed any time of the day or night if they are obstructing snow clearing.
Please note the municipal overnight winter parking ban has been lifted until further notice.
The municipality appreciates your cooperation while this work is completed.
