Snow Removal Taking Place in Downtown this Weekend

On-street parking tips

OSHAWA – In a continued effort to keep Oshawa’s streets clear and safe, the City is completing overnight boulevard snow removal throughout the downtown core through to Sunday, January 26.

During snow removal activities, trucks are brought in to collect and remove the snow from the boulevards. In order to provide access to the boulevards, on street parking in the downtown core will not be allowed after 10:00 p.m. Temporary signs will be placed to advise motorists that snow removal operations will be occurring and that parking is unavailable.

On-going parking reminders

Parking that interferes with snow clearing operations at any time of day is prohibited. Any vehicle parked in a manner that hinders efficient snow clearing operations may be ticketed or towed.

Additionally, seasonal changes to on street parking for the winter season are in effect until April 1:

  • On street parking is not permitted on Oshawa streets from December 1 to April 1, between the hours of 3:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. Vehicles may be ticketed and/or towed during that time, regardless of snow clearing operations and weather conditions.
  • Occasional Use Parking Permits (O.U.P.P.’s) are not valid during salting/snow clearing operations and all O.U.P.P.’s previously arranged, are suspended during salting/snow clearing operations.
