Special Advisory: Winter overnight parking ban in effect

February 16, 2016
Public Service Announcement


Ottawa – The winter overnight parking ban is in effect tonight between 1 a.m. to 7 a.m. across Ottawa. This overnight parking ban will remain in effect until the City announces it has been lifted.


Important information about changes to winter overnight parking bans

During an overnight parking ban, residents are reminded that there is no parking on city streets so that crews can plow them easily and effectively. Vehicles parked on the street between 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. tonight may be ticketed, towed and fined. Avoid the ticket; do not park your vehicle on the street overnight. On-street parking permit holders are exempt from this restriction.


During winter overnight parking bans, residents will have free access to covered City-owned parking garages. For more information about which City garages are free during winter overnight parking bans, visit ottawa.ca.

Where is My Plow

Road Services crews initially focus on plowing Highway 174, transit routes, and arterial and collector roads.   Where is My Plow only provides time estimates for snow plowing on other local roads. Plowing of these other local roads will begin once the priority transportation network is in good condition. The Where is My Plow web tool will be available at that time.


For more winter parking information, please visit ottawa.ca or call 3-1-1 (TTY: 613-580-2401).
