One-sided winter parking rules end in Minneapolis, St. Paul

Minneapolis and St. Paul have lifted their winter parking restrictions that only allowed parking on one side of residential streets.

The restrictions — which Minneapolis put in place on Jan. 25, with St. Paul following suit on March 10 — officially ended at 8 a.m. Wednesday, according to the cities.

Public works directors for both cities on Tuesday cited a recent run of mild weather that’s allowed for steady snowmelt.

While the one-sided parking restrictions are over, the cities noted they could still declare snow emergencies if needed.
