Nearly two weeks after the last major winter storm, many side streets in Minneapolis and St. Paul remain a mess.

This week, plow drivers are targeting roads that are still clogged up with slush and snow.

Starting Tuesday, city crews in both cities are working to clear out all of the extra snow on residential streets.

In Minneapolis, city officials are asking residents to work together to move cars from areas that haven’t been plowed.

In fact, the city has declared one-sided parking in some locations to help make sure first responders can get through on narrow streets.

Meanwhile, St. Paul city officials announced parking rules would start Tuesday and last through Friday, running from 7 a.m. through 5 p.m.

Tuesday, vehicles should be off the north or odd-numbered side of east-west residential streets.

Wednesday, citizens will have to move vehicles from the south or even-numbered side of east-west residential streets.

Toward the end of the week, crews will start plowing north-south roads.

“I love St. Paul, but maybe a little more plowing,” resident Carissa Hancock said.
