The City of Minneapolis will end their snow emergency at 8 p.m. on Saturday night, but city officials have decided today to implement winter parking restrictions as residential streets are not passable for emergency vehicles and other drivers.
The restrictions, which begin at 8 a.m. Sunday morning, mean that parking will be banned on the even numbered side of non-snow emergency routes until April 1st, unless conditions allow the city to lift the ban earlier. Parking is allowed on Snow Emergency Routes, Parkways and the odd numbered side of non-Snow Emergency routes.
Minneapolis has had about 57 inches of snow so far this winter which has led to narrowing of streets that can pose a safety hazard when emergency vehicles can't navigate the streets.
Drivers parking in Minneapolis must now follow the restrictions or they could be ticketed or towed.
