Parking Ban Update for Wednesday, February 3, 2016, 3:30 p.m.

Public Works street crews are currently wrapping up plowing on the even sides of Lincoln’s residential streets. The effort will soon shift to the odd-sides of residential streets and continue throughout the evening. Material spreaders continue to patrol arterial streets, re-plowing and applying deicer material as needed, guarding against re-freeze and responding to emergency service requests. A total of 91 maintenance vehicles are currently deployed.

The residential parking ban for the even-numbered sides of the streets was 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.

Prior to 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.

Mayor Chris Beutler has announced that the snow emergency parking ban for Lincoln will be lifted at 6 p.m. this evening. Where allowed, parking will again be available on major streets and bus routes after this time.

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.
