More parking restrictions are now in place.
 
Starting Wednesday (Dec.5), Strathcona County crews will start removing snow on residential streets. This come into play after upwards 28 cm of snow hit the region this weekend.
 
The county will be placing parking ban signs over 24 hours before clearing starts. Parking will once again be allowed after the snow has been removed.
 
"The ability for us to have cars off the road will allow us to move a lot quicker in getting through all the neighbourhoods," said Ryan Wilson, director of transportation and agriculture services.
 
The orange signs will be posted along roads in each neighbourhood and will include a time frame for parking restrictions. Vehicles that are not moved will be towed with the owner given a $250 ticket.
 
Crews will be working round the clock, so residents could experience nighttime noise.
 
A snow route parking ban was put in place on Tuesday and will be lifted Wednesday at noon.
