Free Parking Offered While Bans Are In Effect

The snow emergency parking ban for Lincoln was lifted at 4 p.m. Wednesday. Where allowed, parking is again available on major streets and bus routes after this time.

A snow removal district parking ban will be in effect from 12:01 to 7 a.m. Thursday, through Monday 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 between midnight and 7 a.m. To assist with snow removal, parking is prohibited on both sides of the street in the districts, which include streets in Downtown/Haymarket, University Place; Havelock; Bethany, College View; 11th and “G”; 17th and Washington; and 25th and Sumner. Maps can be found at

To assist downtown residents during snow removal district parking bans, City Parking Services will offer free overnight parking at Center Park Garage, 1100 “N” St. The service is being offered in an effort to reduce citations and towed vehicles in the downtown area during parking bans. 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 for any time beyond 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. at the posted garage rate. Vehicles that remain in the facility past 10 a.m. will be charged for the entire time the vehicle was in the facility.

City street crews have plowed about one-third of the City’s residential streets. Material spreaders will continue working on trouble spots on the main roads as crews work toward putting the finishing touches on the cleanup effort.
