Citywide private parking prohibition for Edmonton begins at midnight, city announces

Key takeaways: 

  • No parking on the street in front of your home, the city announces on the website.
  • Cars placed on an Edmonton road after massive snow this month.
  •  Edmonton’s leading citywide private parking prohibition goes into force at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday.

Edmonton residents asked not to park in front of their houses: 

For the first time, the City of Edmonton will complete a Phase 2 citywide parking prohibition, immediately affecting citizens where they stay.

The prohibition, which goes into force at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, bans drivers from parking on any private roads or streets till they have been cleaned of snow and ice. The identical law refers to roads in industrial zones.

Drivers are informed to wait for signage at entrances to their communities or revisit the city’s online map to see when their private roads will be registered for removal.

When signage is near, or your street is classified as “In Progress” on the interactive map, teams will come into the region in 72 hours, and wheels must be withdrawn from the road. Source –

The prohibition is anticipated to remain seven to nine days but is anticipated to hit individual communities for nearly 72 hours at a time, the city announced in a press release.

“You do not have to wait for the city to end the ban before parking on a cleared road,” the city announces on its website. Source –

Crews will use a sand/chip mix in crossings once the area has been bladed, and will lift windrows from roads and stroller crossings.

During the parking prohibition, drivers can park on a neighbour’s property with approval, on any road freed during Phase 1 where parking is permitted commonly, and in alternative parking areas given by the city.

Alternative parking areas cover select city facilities, parks and Edmonton Public Library locations with excess parking whose application does not affect regular services.
