St. Paul follows Minneapolis in starting one-sided parking ban

It follows record snowfall during February.
Publish date:

St. Paul has followed Minneapolis in imposing winter parking rules between now and Apr. 1.

The city announced on Sunday that starting at noon on Monday, parking will not be allowed on the even side of all residential streets.

Minneapolis imposed the same restrictions starting this past Wednesday, after historic amounts of snow fell in the metro area in February.

Drivers in St. Paul will still be able to park on "arterial" main streets, as well as the odd-numbered side of residential streets. 

You can find a map of what streets qualify as "arterial" streets right here – but it includes the likes of Summit, Grand, and Marshall avenues, as well as the entirety of downtown.

Both Twin Cities have taken this step because the weather of recent weeks has resulted in many residential streets being narrowed by the snow.

The one-sided parking ban will be lifted temporarily in the event of a Snow Emergency being declared, when regular Snow Emergency parking restrictions apply.

If you end up parking on the even-numbered side of the street between now and April, you leave yourself at risk of having your vehicle towed or ticketed.

It's the first time since March 2014 that St. Paul has imposed a one-sided parking ban.
