Changes to street signs
In preparation for the introduction of snow removal alerts starting in the winter of 2021-2022, the Ville de Saint-Lambert will be making changes to the street signs in certain sectors to facilitate snow removal operations. Door hangers will be distributed to residents of the streets concerned. We invite those residents to pay particular attention to the indications on the new signs. Once they have been installed, a grace period of 30 days will be in effect to give residents time to adjust to the changes.
!!! Snow removal alerts are for everyone !!!
The new signage does not free the residents concerned from their obligation to respect the ban on overnight street parking between midnight and 5:30 a.m., from December 1 to March 31, when a snow removal alert has been issued. During a no-parking period, public parking will be available. (See the list below.)
Snow removal alert
During the winter of 2021-2022, overnight street parking will be permitted from December 1 to March 31, except when a snow removal alert is in effect. In such a case, parking on the streets between midnight and 5:30 a.m. will be prohibited. This ban will be in force throughout the entire municipality.
During the no-parking period, alternative parking options will be available.

What does this mean for you?
It is your responsibility to find out if a snow removal operation is planned. If your vehicle is parked on the street and is likely to interfere with snow removal, it may be ticketed and towed.
How do I ﬁnd out?
The City will notify the public no later than 4 p.m. that an alert is in effect or has been lifted. There are a number of ways to find out:
- Call the Info-snow removal line at 450-466-3788;
- Consult the website (look for the alert banner on the home page) and our social media;
- Subscribe to the Info-snow removal alert on the B-CITI portal. Depending on the options you choose, you may receive an email, a text message or a mobile alert informing you that a snow clearing operation is scheduled.
Note the exceptions!
If no snow removal operation is in effect, overnight street parking is permit-ted between midnight and 5:30 a.m., except in permanent no-parking zones.
Also, pay attention to temporary no-parking signs (stuck in snow banks) to keep the streets clear for one-time snow removal operations.
How to facilitate operations
You can assist our snow removal teams and help operations run smoothly by adopting certain behaviours.
Keep informed about our priorities
Spreading anti-icing agents, plowing, snow blowing, loading, etc. are different operations carried out during snow removal. We will keep you regularly informed during the winter when major operations are going to take place in our city so that you can help us ensure that they go smoothly, for example, by removing your car from the street.
Place your waste bins in your driveway
Always place your waste bins in your driveway, not on the street or sidewalk, so that snow clearing vehicles can get around more easily. If possible, remove your bins as soon as they have been emptied. When there are obstacles on the sidewalk or vehicles parked too close to the sidewalk, equipment operators have to skirt around them by moving off the sidewalk, which means poorer snow clearing.
Pile your snow on your property
When you are clearing the snow off your driveway, you must pile it on your own property so that pedestrians and vehicles can get around safely. If a contractor does your snow removal, you are responsible for telling him that he must deposit the snow on your property and make sure that none is left in the street or on the sidewalk.
Remove all vehicules from the street
