WORCESTER - The Worcester Department of Public Works declared a winter parking ban effective Friday, January 7, starting at midnight.
The declaration is in response to winter weather forecasted on Friday. The National Weather Service says 5 to 8 inches of heavy snow is possible throughout the day on Friday.
During the Declared Winter Parking Ban, there is NO PARKING on either side of main arteries, bus routes, and streets in the downtown area. On all other streets, city ordinance permits parking only on the odd numbered side of the street, unless otherwise posted. Parking enforcement—including ticketing and towing—will be active during the Declared Winter Parking Ban.
See the City of Worcester website to look up specific restrictions for any street in the city.
City of Worcester Public Parking Garages are free to use upon the announcement of a Declared Winter Parking Ban. Regular parking rates will apply once ban is lifted.
Trash and recycling collection will continue as scheduled. However, the routes may deviate due to weather and roadway conditions. Residents should have their trash and recycling curbside by 7 AM.
