One-Sided Parking Is In Effect | Due to the record amount of snowfall this winter, the City of Lynn has implementing one-sided street parking.

The rule, which pertains only to streets that offer parking on both sides, will be going into effect to facilitate the convenience of travel for the general public, and for the emergency access of all public safety vehicles.  According to the relevant Lynn ordinance, all streets that do not prohibit parking for any reason will have to adhere to the new winter parking guidelines.  Parking will be allowed on the even sides of the street only.  On streets where parking is currently allowed on the odd side only, and prohibited by signage on the even side, parking will continue to be permitted on the odd side of the street.  As is always the case, cars parked in such a way as to impede the flow of traffic on any street will be subject to ticketing and towing.

"Due to the unprecedented frequency and amount of snowfall we have had this winter, I concluded that this measure is necessary for the safety of all of our residents," said Mayor Judith Flanagan Kennedy.  "We appreciate the public's patience as we continue to work to widen and clear our streets."
Residents are encouraged to plan ahead in order to secure parking spots while the measure is in effect.  The one-sided parking rule will be in effect for as long as public safety requires, but must be lifted by March 15 in accordance with the City's snow ordinance. For further information, residents are encouraged to visit the City's website or call (781) 599-1444.

Snow Removal Operations

The DPW is continuing to engage in snow removal operations in an effort to widen roads and improve visibility at intersections at locations throughout the City of Lynn.  Locations for snow removal are determined by priority and are based on multiple factors including bus routes, areas around schools and areas suffering from great traffic congestion.
In order to complete this work as quickly and efficiently as possible, the DPW will be posting temporary “No Parking” signs on roads where operations are scheduled to occur within 24 to 48 hours.  Residents should make alternate arrangements for parking on any street that is posted. 

The Lynn Police Department will be enforcing these posted “No Parking” restrictions and violators may be ticketed and towed.  In an effort to not have to ticket and tow vehicles, police cruisers will be in the targeted snow removal streets tonight beginning at approximately 6pm to warn residents to move cars by using sirens and their PA speakers. They will also have cruisers assigned to assist with traffic control for the snow removal crews beginning at 8 PM.

Your continued cooperation and patience is appreciated. Thank you.
