The Halifax Regional Municipality is asking residents to refrain from parking on select streets in downtown Halifax and Dartmouth to assist with targeted snow clearing efforts over the next few days.
Snow removal will take place at the following locations each evening and throughout the night:
Monday, March 11:
- Agricola Street (Willow to Cunard streets)
- Barrington Street (Spring Garden Road to South Street)
- Portland Street (all)
- Queen Street (all)
- King Street (all)
- Tulip Street (all)
- Dahlia Street (all)
Tuesday, March 12:
- Creighton and Maynard streets (Cornwallis to Bloomfield streets)
Wednesday, March 13:
- Brenton Street (all)
- Birmingham Street (all)
- Dresden Row and Queen Street (Sackville to Morris streets)
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.
