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.
