Minneapolis, St. Paul winter parking restrictions end Thursday

Posted: Updated:
MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

Signs of spring? Minneapolis and St. Paul are lifting winter parking restrictions at 10 a.m. Thursday, March 27.

MINNEAPOLIS

Restrictions were put in place on Feb. 23 after streets were crowded with snow, making it difficult for fire trucks, ambulances, and other emergency vehicles to navigate in some neighborhoods.

Most neighborhood streets were limited to one-side parking. On, Thursday, 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.

Drivers should continue to follow any posted parking signs as long as they are in place.

However, this is Minnesota, and it is possible that additional Snow Emergencies and parking restrictions could be replaced following a potential storm.

For more information:

Minneapolis offers residents, workers and visitors a number of tools to help learn more about Snow Emergencies and Winter Parking Restrictions

ST. PAUL

St. Paul will also lift parking restrictions at 10 a.m. on Thursday.

Parking will be allowed on all streets unless otherwise posted.

Some streets are still too narrow to allow for parking on both sides and will be posted with temporary "no parking" signs. Vehicles parked in no parking zones could be ticketed and towed.

    When it comes to drag racing, rocket-type speed is the name of the game -- but that also means things can go wrong very quickly, and a double crash at a Brainerd, Minn., track is another grim reminder.
