Snow Route parking ban lifted

December 27, 2021

Public Service Announcement

The parking bans put into effect for snow route areas on December 25 have now been lifted. Even with the lift of the parking ban, residents are still encouraged to move their vehicles off the road when it snows as it helps plows clear from curb to curb safely and quickly.  

Residents can find out if the parking bans are in effect by:  

  • Having a notice sent directly to your email inbox by signing up for snow route news through the City’s e-subscribe channel
  • Visiting the City’s website at kelowna.ca/snowroutes
  • Following the City’s social media channels (Facebook and Twitter @cityofkelowna). 
  • Listening to local news on the radio or reading online news sites or local newspapers.  

The City clears and de-ices municipal streets including snow routes by their priority classification. Priority one includes high-traffic roads such as Gordon Drive. Priority two includes collector roads such as Richter Street, bus routes, school zones, town centers and emergency vehicle stations. Priority three includes local roads in neighbourhoods and priority four includes remaining lanes. Highway 97 (Harvey Avenue) and Highway 33 are maintained by the Provincial Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.   

A big thank you to all residents for their cooperation during this significant snowfall event. If someone helped to clear your sidewalk or driveway over the holiday snowfall, you can nominate them as a Snow Angel.
