Winter Parking Restrictions end in Minneapolis

Minneapolis has lifted Winter Parking Restrictions. Please help spread the word on the job and among your networks.

The restrictions were put in place Feb. 23 after snow accumulations narrowed many streets, making it difficult for fire trucks, ambulances and other emergency vehicles to navigate in some neighborhoods. Limiting parking to one side of most neighborhood streets created more reliable access for emergency responses.

Our recent milder temperatures and sunnier days have melted snow along city streets, widening them far enough that the fire chief, Public Works officials and other public safety officials have determined the restrictions can be lifted. Normal parking rules will apply on most city streets. Drivers should continue to follow posted parking signs.
