Temporary overnight on-street parking restrictions remain in effect in Barrie.

According to a news release issued Friday morning, the city has extended the “winter maintenance event,” restricting on-street parking overnight to allow for snow removal.

The restrictions began on Wednesday after the city received the first major snowfall of the season.

“Barrie received about 10-15 cm of snow last night. Plows started on priority roads at 5:30 p.m. and on secondary roads at midnight,” the release reads. “Snow plowing continues today, and the City of Barrie is extending the winter maintenance event tonight.”

Officials say on Nov. 17 from 3 a.m. to 6 a.m., on-street parking is prohibited within the downtown business improvement area.

Parking on other city streets is prohibited between 12:01 a.m. and 7 a.m. to allow crews to effectively clear the streets.
