The sun and a bit of outside assistance helped City of Calgary crews make short work of a record-breaking snowfall on Tuesday, so the snow route parking ban will end early.
The city says you can resume your normal parking as of 6 a.m. on Friday. That’s 28 hours earlier than expected.
In 23 hours after the ban was put in place, the city issued 1,356 tickets for vehicles that had been left on designated snow routes.
Bill Biensch, roads maintenance manager for the city, also extended his thanks to crews from Edmonton, Red Deer, Medicine Hat and Okotoks for bringing in equipment to help with the unprecedented early-October snowfall.
Environment Canada recorded 33.8 centimtres of snow over Oct. 1 and 2 at the Calgary International Airport.
