Snow Removal

Snow Removal

Snow removal: No parking on streets

From November 15 to April 1

Under Street and Traffic Bylaw No. 1313-1993, every street, boulevard, alley, and highway in the City of Terrace is designated as a snow removal route, and parking on them is prohibited during the winter months, from November 15 to April 1. Any vehicle that impedes snow removal and/or road maintenance work on any snow removal route may be towed.

Plowing in residential areas can occur at any time of the day or night.

Snow clearing operations in the downtown area are typically carried out between 10:00 pm and 6:00 am.

In addition, it is illegal for anyone to place ice or snow from any private property, parking lot, or entrance way onto City right-of-way as it impedes traffic, creates drainage problems, buries fire hydrants, and interferes with routine snow plowing. Under this bylaw, you may be fined for doing so.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Help Us Keep the Sidewalks Clear

Please place your refuse carts at the end of your driveway and not on the sidewalk. They can get in the way of our sidewalk plowing machine.

(Plus, they make it difficult for those using mobility devices, pushing strollers, etc. to get past at any time of the year, so please help those folks out by keeping your carts off the sidewalk year-round!)
