City Offers Alternate Parking Options During Parking Ban
A snow emergency parking ban will go into effect at 6 p.m. tonight (Monday, February 1).
Recent storm predictions for the Lincoln area calling for potential blizzard conditions. Residents and motorists are strongly encouraged to plan ahead. In order for plows to effectively clear the streets, parking bans will be enforced. These bans will impact motorists who normally park on city streets. To avoid the expense of ticketing or towing, the public is asked to make alternate arrangements for parking.
During a snow emergency parking ban, parking is banned on emergency snow routes, bus routes, school routes and other major arterial streets. A map showing these routes can be found on the City website at lincoln.ne.gov and in the blue pages of the Windstream phone directory.
