New Haven declares snow emergency, with parking ban

NEW HAVEN -- The city  has declared a snow emergency and issued a downtown parking ban and citywide even side only parking rules, according to a statement.

Beginning at 11 p.m. today - Jan.  26, parking is prohibited on all downtown streets within the area bounded by Howe Street, Tower Pwky, Grove Street, State Street, and North Frontage Road, the statement said.

Cars parking in violation of the downtown parking ban may be ticketed and/or towed,the statement said. The downtown parking ban will expire at 6 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 28, the statement said.

During the ban, "all residents and visitors are encouraged to use off street parking garages as an alternative to parking on the street," the statement said.

The following garages are open while the downtown parking ban is in effect:
Crown Street : $3 charge 5 PM to 7 AM - after 7 AM regular fees apply
Temple Street: $3 charge 5 PM to 7 AM - after 7 AM regular fees apply
Granite Square: no charge 5 PM to 7 AM - after 7 AM regular fees apply

In addition, residents citywide are to park only on the even side of the street during and after the storm, the statement said. On streets that have legal parking on just one side, residents should park on that side, the statement said. Wherever possible, residents are requested to park their vehicles in driveways and garages, the statement said.

Parking rules requiring vehicles to park on the even side of the street citywide will expire at 7 a.m. Jan. 29, the statement said.

At all times there is no parking within 25 feet of any intersection, within 20 feet of any fire hydrant or bus shelter or in any manner that blocks the passage of traffic. Cars violating these rules are subject to being ticketed and/or towed regardless of any declared snow parking ban, the statement said.
