UPDATE: Lincoln parking ban
The Mayor issued a residential parking ban that went into effect at 3 p.m. today. This means parking is banned on the even numbered sides of residential streets. That is generally the north and east sides of the street. The snow emergency parking ban on both sides of all emergency snow routes, bus and school routes and other major arterial streets is still active. For a map of these routes, visit snow.lincoln.ne.gov. Both bans remain in effect until lifted by the Mayor.
Vehicles parked illegally during Snow Emergency and Residential Parking bans are subject to fines, towing and storage costs at the owners’ expense. Vehicles parked in a way that does not allow emergency vehicles to pass may be ticketed for obstructing a public street. For information on towed vehicles, call the Emergency Communications Center, 402-441-7204.
More than sixty City and contractor crews continue to plow and apply deicing materials to emergency snow routes, arterial streets, bus and school routes. Full-scale residential plowing has begun and is expected to take approximately 24 hours before switching to the odd numbered sides of residential streets.
