The city of St. Paul has declared a snow emergency after an overnight storm that dropped more than 3 inches over the metropolitan area.
Minneapolis also has declared a snow emergency.
Here are the rules of Saint Paul:
As of 9 p.m. tonight, all nighttime snow removal routes will be cleared. Do not park on these downtown streets and anywhere you see signs that say “night snow plow road” or “night snow plow road on this side of the street”.
Vehicles not moved from these routes by 9 p.m. may be ticketed and towed.
As of 8 a.m. Monday, all daytime snow removal routes will be cleared. Do not park on these streets, which are not marked. If a street does not have a night plow sign, consider it a daytime plow lane.
Vehicles not moved from these routes by 8 a.m. Monday could be ticketed and towed.
Here is a snow emergency parking map.
The city has a few winter reminders:
- Shovel your sidewalk. The city of St. Paul’s ordinance requires that snow and ice be removed from sidewalks within 24 hours. Owners of corner buildings should shovel curbs, sidewalks and crosswalks to the street.
- Don’t push the snow into the streets.
- Do not place recycling carts and garbage cans on the street. Carts should be parked on the boulevard or at the end of the driveway.
- If you can, please shovel fire hydrants and remove snow and ice from storm drains to prevent flooding in the streets.
