Winter Parking Restrictions

To ensure that fire trucks and other emergency vehicles can continue to navigate Minneapolis neighborhoods, Winter Parking Restrictions are in effect in Minneapolis until April 1, unless conditions allow the City to lift the ban earlier.

Beginning Wednesday, February 27, 2019 at 8:00 a.m., DO NOT PARK on the EVEN numbered side of non-Snow Emergency Routes. Streets designated as Snow Emergency Routes and Parkways are not affected by Winter Parking Restrictions and vehicles can park on both sides of these streets, unless otherwise posted. Cedar Avenue, Riverside Avenue, and 20th Ave South are all Snow Emergency Routes near to The Cedar.

Winter parking restrictions are being put in place because Minneapolis has had so much snow that streets have narrowed to the point that access for emergency vehicles is restricted, posing a risk to public safety. Vehicles that are parked in violation of the parking restrictions are subject to a ticket and tow.

For more information visit the City's snow information web site, or call the Snow Emergency Hotline: (612) 348-SNOW (7669).
