With more snow headed our way this weekend, street parking could get confusing. Here is how it would work:

If Minneapolis declares a Snow Emergency beginning March 10 at 9 p.m., then Winter Parking Restrictions (no parking on the even side of the street) will be temporarily suspended beginning at 4 p.m. March 10 and will resume at 8 a.m. March 13.

Here is what that means for parking day-by-day:

March 10 (Day 1)

  • 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. – Winter Parking Restrictions suspended. Drivers may start moving their cars on to EITHER side of non-Snow Emergency routes.
  • 9 p.m. to 8 a.m. – Do not park on EITHER side of Snow Emergency routes until 8 a.m. or the street is fully plowed.

March 11, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. (Day 2)

Do not park on the EVEN numbered side of non-Snow Emergency routes until 8 p.m., or that side of the street is fully plowed, or on EITHER side of parkways until 8 p.m., or the parkway is fully plowed.

March 12, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. (Day 3)

Do not park on the ODD numbered side of non-Snow Emergency routes until 8 p.m., or that side of the street is fully plowed.

March 13, 8 a.m.

Winter Parking Restrictions resume. During Winter Parking Restrictions parking is banned on the EVEN numbered side of non-Snow-Emergency-routes until April 1, 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, unless otherwise posted.
