Parking Ban Update for Wednesday, February 3, 2016, 11:45 a.m.

Public Works officials report that residential street plowing on the even-numbered sides of the streets is proceeding ahead of schedule. As a result, the residential parking ban for the even-numbered sides of the streets will be lifted at 2 p.m.

The residential parking ban for the odd-numbered sides of the streets will go into effect at 6 p.m. this evening. At that time, parking will be banned on the odd-numbered sides of the streets on all streets that are not arterials or bus routes.

Between 2 and 6 p.m., residents are urged to move their vehicles from the odd- to the even-numbered sides of the streets if possible to help expedite residential cleanup this afternoon.

A snow emergency parking ban also remains in effect. That means parking is banned on both sides of the street on emergency snow routes, bus routes and other major arterial streets. A map showing these routes can be found on the City website.

A snow removal district parking ban will be in effect from 12:01 to 7 a.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday – February 4th through 6th – in the City’s eight snow removal districts. In these areas, snow is plowed into windrows, loaded into trucks and hauled out of the area overnight. To assist with snow removal, parking is prohibited on both sides of the streets in the districts. Maps of the districts can be found at lincoln.ne.gov (keyword snow). To assist downtown residents during snow removal district parking bans, free overnight parking is offered at Center Park Garage, 1100 “N” St. Visit the City web site for details.

StarTran reports a few buses are running up to 10 minutes behind, but most are on time. Police report 14 accidents in the City from midnight to 11 a.m.
