The City of Grande Prairie has announced parking bans on permanent snow routes starting Wednesday, March 1.

The parking ban restricts parking on permanent snow routes (priority 1 and 2 routes) from Monday to Friday between 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Parking bans come into effect to ensure safe access to roadways during snow removal operations.

Residents are asked to remove parked vehicles from priority 1 and 2 roads. A map of priority routes is available for viewing at

"My top priority is ensuring the safety of all residents during the winter season,” says Wade Nellis, City of Grande Prairie Director of Transportation. “By implementing parking bans on permanent snow routes, we can facilitate smooth snow clearing operations and maintain safe access to roadways for all drivers. We encourage residents to check the City website and remove their vehicles from priority 1 and 2 routes during the ban period."

A notice will be put out on the City’s Facebook and Twitter pages once the parking ban is lifted.
