Winter Parking Restrictions
The City of Minneapolis announced that the Winter Parking Restrictions will be lifted, effective 10 a.m. Thursday. The restrictions were put in place on Feb. 23 after massive amounts of snow accumulation narrowed many streets and made it unsafe for large emergency vehicles to navigate.
The Twin Cities have already implemented winter parking restrictions due to this season’s combo of relentless snow and persistent, frigid cold, and now parking restrictions are coming to the western suburbs.
Due to the almost 57 inches of snow that has fallen in Minneapolis so far this season, city officials will implement winter parking restrictions beginning on Sunday morning. The restrictions effectively ban parking on the even side of all non-snow emergency routes beginning at 8 a.m. on Sunday morning, and will last until April 1, according to city officials. The ban may be lifted before that end date if conditions improve.
In this season of so little snow, folks in one Minnesota town are wondering why the parking tickets piled up.
Minneapolis has lifted the winter parking restrictions, which limited parking to one side of most neighborhood streets to create better access for emergency vehicles.
Finding street parking in Minneapolis is about to get a whole lot tougher.
In Minneapolis, all the snow could soon mean parking on just one side of the street all the way until April.
