Special parking restrictions lifted on Bryant and Grand avenues

The City of Minneapolis, in coordination with Metro Transit, has lifted the special parking restrictions on Bryant and Grand avenues and normal parking rules now apply to those streets.

The City of Minneapolis put in place Winter Parking Restrictions on Feb. 11 that prohibited parking on the even side of non-Snow Emergency routes throughout the City. During that time, Bryant and Grand avenues, which are Snow Emergency routes, had special signage installed that prohibited parking on the west side of those streets to accommodate Metro Transit buses. Those signs remained in place when the City ended the Winter Parking Restrictions on March 5, but have now been removed.

The public’s cooperation in following the restrictions greatly aided emergency responders in their work to serve folks in Minneapolis. During the time the parking restrictions were in place, Minneapolis Fire crews made more than 1,800 runs for emergency medical calls and fires— and crews were able gain better access on those runs because of the parking restrictions.

Although the Winter Parking Restrictions have been lifted, it is still possible to have additional Snow Emergencies this year. Drivers should be mindful of the normal Snow Emergency rules and procedures and check the City's 348-SNOW hotline, the Web, or the many other Snow Emergency notification tools if we receive more snowfall.
