Minneapolis ends winter parking restrictions

Goodbye, snow emergency!

Goodbye, snow emergency!

Since December 17, we've been slogging through snow and ice, trying to dash home early enough to find an overnight home for our vehicles on our parking-restricted Minneapolis streets.

But today, we've just gotten the best sign of spring ever: Parking restrictions are officially over.


Effective today, you can park wherever you please. The only caveat: The city still has a few signs posted limiting parking on narrower Snow Emergency routes--and if you see one of those signs, follow it. However, as soon as the city removes those signs, it's a parking free-for-all.

Pretty soon it will be summer.
