WINTER PARKING: Robbinsdale, Hopkins adopt one-side restrictions

Posted: Updated:

The densely packed ice on the roads is beginning to melt, but tight roads have officials in the cities of Robbinsdale and Hopkins calling on drivers to limit parking to just one side on city streets.

Many metro commuters, including residents of St. Paul and Minneapolis, are also enduring temporary parking restrictions to ensure emergency vehicles can navigate snow-crowded streets.

EVEN-SIDE ONLY IN HOPKINS

The parking restrictions announced Wednesday will go into effect at 1 a.m. on Monday, March 10 and will remain in place through April 25 unless officials call off the parking restrictions sooner.

Parking will not be allowed on the odd side of any roadway in Hopkins, and vehicles in violation will be ticketed in the amount of $42.

ODD-SIDE ONLY IN ROBBINSDALE

Effective immediately, residents and other Drivers will not be allowed to park on the even-numbered side of city streets, and police will begin distributing warning fliers before issuing citations.

The City Council passed the parking restriction ordinance on Monday night, and it includes several exceptions to the one-side rule, including the following streets:

- Adair Avenue North
- Noble Avenue North
- Parkview Boulevard
- West Broadway
- 45th Avenue North between north Indiana and Robin avenues
- France Avenue North between the 2600 block and the 3200 block
- Regent Avenue North between the 3700 block and the 4100 block
- Zenith Avenue North between the 2600 block and Lowry Avenue North

No specific end-date was given.

If 2 or more inches of snow should fall in the future, parking will be temporarily banned on all city streets that have not yet been plowed curb to curb.
