After several inches of snow fell on Monday, both Minneapolis and St. Paul have declared snow emergencies.
The restrictions go into place on Monday night, with Minneapolis' starting at 9 p.m. with no parking allowed on any Snow Emergency route until 8 a.m. or until the street is fully plowed.
There will then be no parking on even numbered side of the road from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, and no parking on the odd numbered side of the road from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on New Year's Day.
In St. Paul, night plow routes will start at 9 p.m. Monday, which includes downtown streets and all streets with "night plow route" and "night plow route this side of street" signs.
Then, all day plow routes will be plowed starting 8 a.m. Tuesday – which is basically every street that's not a night plow route.
This will continue until 9 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 3, with vehicle owners told not to park on streets where snow has not been plowed to the curb, otherwise you face being ticketed and towed.
Residents of both cities are also being reminded to keep their sidewalks clear of snow.
