Evening & overnight Jan. 26/27 Downtown snow removal

various downtown streets, see list below
Start Date: 
Sunday, January 26, 2020 - 6:00pm to Monday, January 27, 2020 - 9:30am

Snow removal operations continue into the evening in the Georgestown area, announced earlier today.

Snow removal is taking place this evening Sunday, Jan. 26, and continuing overnight, in downtown St. John’s on:

Charlton Street, between Springdale and Casey
Gilbert Street
Dunford Street
John Street
Bradbury Place
Monk Lane
Power’s Street
Atlantic Avenue
Carnell Street
Larkins Square
Water Street - north side from Waldegrave to Topsail
New Gower Street - south side

To effectively remove snow from these roads, parked cars must be moved. Owners of vehicles parked on these streets are urged to clean and remove their vehicles as soon as possible. These vehicles can temporarily park on the streets that have been cleared, or overnight in select parking garages

Additional downtown residential streets will be added as snow removal operations progress. This will be communicated through a public advisory on the City website, and the City’s social media feeds. The City appreciates the support and cooperation of vehicle owners in the downtown during this emergency recovery.

We are listing downtown snow removal via public advisory and social media due to on-street parking, and that we require vehicles be moved to accommodate snow removal. Outside of the downtown there is a 24-hour parking ban in place; there are approximately 20 snow blowers operating 24/7 in multiple areas throughout the city and operations this weekend have been focused in school zones, priority 2 and priority 3 (neighborhood/side streets) that have only been cleared once since the storm.
