The parking ban put into effect for snow route areas on Tuesday, December 20, 2022, has 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 the roads from curb to curb safely and quickly.
Residents can stay up to date on parking bans by:
- Subscribing to our Snow Routes e-newsletter
- Visiting kelowna.ca/snow where advisories will be posted
- Following the City on Facebook and Twitter
- Following local media who will be notified of all snow advisories
The City clears snow and de-ices municipal roads (excluding highways 33 and 97) based on their priority status. Priority One routes include high-traffic roads like Gordon Drive and Rutland Road. Priority Two routes include collector roads such as Richter Street, bus routes, school zones, town centres and emergency vehicle stations. Priority Three and Four routes include residential roads and laneways. 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 patience and cooperation during the past few snowfalls.
