Snow removal is currently taking place in downtown St. John’s, and will continue overnight into the morning hours of Wednesday, Jan. 22. Crews anticipate completing Hamilton Avenue, Hamilton Ave Extension and Harbour Drive overnight.  
These roads are being cleared to provide temporary parking spaces so we can begin snow removal in downtown residential areas; vehicles parked on Hamilton Ave, Hamilton Ave Extension and Harbour Drive should be moved immediately. At this time the City is clearing and removing snow from roads only.
Once those streets are cleared overnight, during the daytime on Wednesday, Jan. 22 City plows will remove snow on:

  • Monkstown Road
  • Rennies Mill Road
  • Queen’s Road
  • Prince of Wales Street
  • Barter’s Hill
  • Casey Street
  • Springdale Street
  • Empire Avenue

To effectively remove snow, parked cars must be moved. Owners of vehicles parked on the streets listed immediately above are urged to clean and remove their vehicles during the morning of Wednesday, Jan. 22. These vehicles can temporarily park on the streets that have been cleared.
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.
