Red Deer residential snow plowing starts this week

Local residents should check plowing schedule and move their vehicles

Residential snow plowing begins Friday in Red Deer.

Residents are reminded parking restrictions are effect during plowing. Vehicles left on the street on Green Routes will be ticketed and towed, and on Grey Routes they will be ticketed and plowed in.

“Vehicles left on the street slow down our operations so we’re asking for the help and cooperation of residents,” said Greg Sikora, Public Works Manager.

The best way to be notified of when your street will be plowed is to sign up for the City of Red Deer’s new mass notification system, Notify Red Deer. It will allow residents to receive Snow Zone alerts by text, email or phone, and multiple addresses can be entered (e.g., parents’ house, work, children’s schools, etc.).

Notifications will be sent one to two days before plowing. The first 5,000 residents who sign up at will be entered in a draw to win a one-year family pass to any city recreation centre.

Other ways to check the plowing schedule include: going online to, the City of Red Deer’s Facebook and Twitter pages, or the Snow Zone Hotline at 403-406-8796.

“No parking” signs will be installed on Green Routes; and large signs will be put up at the entrances to neighbourhoods on Grey Routes. The tentative plowing schedule is as follows:

– Green Routes in Snow Zones E and F will start Friday, Jan. 13

– Green Routes in Snow Zone G will start Saturday, Jan. 14

– Grey Routes in Snow Zone E will start Tuesday, Jan. 17

– Grey Routes in Snow Zone F will start Wednesday, Jan. 18

Remaining Snow Zones will be scheduled in alphabetical order, ending in Snow Zone C (Snow Zone D, which is the downtown area, was completed in December).

Plowing will be done from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Saturday, on Green Routes, and Monday to Friday on Grey Routes.
