Snow clearing crews hit the city streets

Crews are conducting snow and ice control operations on routes throughout Prince George following the recent snowfall, the City said Monday.

Trucks and sidewalk machines are deployed this morning clearing roads and sidewalks. Crews are also using de-icing and traction material on priority routes, intersections, and hills.

Snow and ice control operations will continue into the afternoon and overnight with plowtrucks and sidewalk machines.

Park closures to continue

Due to snowfall, crews began seasonal closures at select parks and outdoor civic facilities on Friday.

The gates at the entrances to Connaught Hill are closed to vehicular traffic. The outdoor public washrooms at Duchess and Lheidli T'enneh Memorial Parks are also closed, as is Masich Place Stadium, including the track.

Parking Restrictions

Motorists are reminded that parking restrictions are in effect from October 15 to April 15 each year to help with snow operations:

On-street parking is prohibited from midnight to 7 a.m. downtown.

On-street parking is prohibited from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. on Priority One roads and hills, the Hospital District, and a number of other designated roads.

On-street parking is prohibited from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. in residential areas. Parking on the side of the street with odd house numbers is permitted from 6 p.m. to 8 a.m. unless otherwise posted.

Illegally parked vehicles are subject to a $50 ticket per offence and/or may be towed.

"Plowing around parked vehicles can slow down operations and create hazards for other vehicles by creating windrows in the street," the City said.

Citizens can keep current on information about snow clearing and other road operations by subscribing to the City's News and Events service (select the "Roads" category).
