Important Winter Parking Restriction Information
As of Sunday, February 23, 2014 the City of Minneapolis has implemented Winter Parking Restrictions due to winter weather conditions that make limiting parking to one side of non-Snow Emergency Routes the most effective way to ensure access for emergency and other vehicles on Minneapolis streets.
What happens if a Snow Emergency is declared during Winter Parking Restrictions?
If a Snow Emergency is declared while Winter Parking Restrictions are in effect, the Winter Parking Restrictions rules will be temporarily suspended and Snow Emergency rules will apply. Drivers may start moving their cars off of Snow Emergency routes and on to EITHER side of non-Snow Emergency routes beginning at 4pm on the day the Snow Emergency is declared (Day 1). Winter Parking Restrictions resume again at 8am the morning following Day 3, when the Snow Emergency comes to an end.

Public Works crews and contractors are doing everything they can to clear and widen streets, but subzero temperatures and compacted ice make this work extremely difficult and slow. If a street or city-owned alley, or sidewalk approach in your area needs special attention: report it to 311 online or call 311 on weekdays between 7am and 7pm.
Report to 311:
