Public Works Using Emergency No Parking Signs to Remove Snow & Widen Streets This Week
Attention Downtown/Island, East End, and West End residents who park on-street: Public Works continues to post streets with emergency no parking red/green signs for snow removal during the hours of 11 PM and 7 AM to help widen narrow streets. They will also take advantage of existing street regulations to perform this work, but need both sides of the street for equipment to move through safely.
Vehicles left in areas that are posted with emergency no parking signs may be towed. It is important that you not leave your car on-street in these areas for longer than 12 hours at a time as signs will go up each day this week as we move around the city to remove snow. Please note that if equipment breaks down, we may not make it to your street that night and the signs will need to stay up for another night until the work is performed. We are doing the best we can with the resources we have to remove the snow.
If your street is posted, you can park in the following snow ban sites: Cutter Street, Eastern Prom (waterside), Western Prom (waterside), Deering Oaks, and State Street. Please follow the restrictions that are in place for these sites as outlined at www.portlandmaine.gov/snowbans. You may also park in school lots, but you must be out by 6:30 AM.
Thank you for your cooperation and compliance as we work to make the streets safe.
