Winter Parking Restrictions ending in Minneapolis

 Drivers should continue to follow posted parking signs

March 26, 2014 (MINNEAPOLIS) Effective 10 a.m. tomorrow, March 27, Minneapolis is lifting the Winter Parking Restrictions. The restrictions were put in place on 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. Starting at 10 a.m. tomorrow, normal parking rules will apply on most city streets. In the few areas where additional parking restrictions were posted using temporary signs, there will be a transition period of about a week in which those signs will be removed or replaced.  As always, drivers should continue to follow any posted parking signs as long as they are in place.

Although the Winter Parking Restrictions are being lifted, it is still possible to have additional Snow Emergencies. 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.
