City of Ottawa Snow Removal Plan

Ever wonder when your street will be plowed after a winter snow storm? The City of Ottawa has provided this great infographic demonstrating their plan.

Note that most residential side streets are not plowed until 10-16 hours after the beginning of snow accumulation. While the overnight parking ban is in effect from 1am-7am, this sometimes means that the majority of our streets are not plowed within the parking ban hours.

Please be courteous to your neighbours and try to keep your vehicles off the streets until plowing has been completed.

City of Ottawa's Snow Removal Plan

 

Overnight parking restriction in effect

Environment Canada has forecast snow accumulation of 7 cm or more for the Ottawa area. As a result, overnight parking restrictions are now in effect from 1 a.m. to 7 a.m. across Ottawa. This overnight parking restriction will remain in effect until the City announces it has been lifted.

During an overnight parking restriction, vehicles are banned from parking on any city street so that crews can clear them easily and effectively. Vehicles that remain parked on the street during an overnight parking restriction will be ticketed. On-street parking permit holders are exempt from this restriction.

The City of Ottawa's priority for snow clearing is to ensure that streets are clear and safe for motorists, public transit, pedestrians and cyclists.

(I think I'll try to make a sidebar widget for this purpose next year.)
