A residential parking ban that began at 8 a.m. Thursday remains in effect in Lincoln. Parking is currently banned on the even-numbered sides of the streets. That parking ban will change at 8 a.m. Friday. At that time, parking will be banned on the odd-numbered sides (south and west) of the street in all residential areas. At that time, parking will again be permitted on the even sides (north and east).
Mayor Beutler also announced the snow emergency parking ban for Lincoln has been lifted. Where allowed, parking is available on major streets and bus routes.
A snow removal district parking ban will be in effect for tonight.In these districts, parking will be banned on both sides of the street from 12:01 to 7 a.m. Friday. In these areas, snow is plowed into windrows, loaded in to trucks and hauled out of the area. A map of the eight snow removal districts is available at lincoln.ne.gov. The districts include streets in the following areas: Downtown, University Place, Havelock, Bethany, College View, 11th and "G," 17th and Washington and 25th and Sumner.
To assist downtown residents during snow removal district parking bans, City Parking Services will offer free overnight parking at Center Park Garage, 1100 "N" St. The service is being offered in an effort to reduce citations and towed vehicles in the downtown area during parking bans. The service will be offered from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. when the City is under a snow removal district parking ban. Customers will be charged for any time beyond 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. at the posted garage rate. Vehicles that remain in the facility past 10 a.m. will be charged for the entire time the vehicle was in the facility.
About 78 crews continue sanding and plowing operations. Streets are slick and temperatures are expected to drop so motorists are urged to be aware of overnight freezing conditions. The Lincoln Police Department reports 28 accidents since midnight. StarTran reports that buses are running on time.
