A snow removal district parking ban will be in effect from 12:01 to 7 a.m. Tuesday, March 12th and Wednesday, March 13th 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, which include streets in Downtown and the Haymarket; University Place; Havelock; Bethany; College View; 11th and "G"; 17th and Washington; and 25th and Sumner. Maps can be found at lincoln.ne.gov.
To assist downtown residents during snow removal district parking bans, free overnight parking is offered at Center Park Garage, 1100 "N" St. To reduce citations and towed vehicles downtown, 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 the posted rate for any time beyond those hours. Vehicles that remain in the garage past 10 a.m. will be charged for the entire time the vehicle was in the facility.
No other parking bans are in effect. City crews have working all day clearing snow in residential areas and spreading sand on the major streets. The Lincoln Police Department reports 28 accidents in the City since midnight. StarTran buses are running on time.
