Newark to enforce no parking regulations during snow storm

Newark Police will enforce no parking regulations on snow covered streets.

With a winter storm forecast for Thursday, Newark is advising residents that it will enforce its no parking regulations on snow emergency routes.

"New signs have been posted on streets throughout the City of Newark to notify motorists of the streets designated for no parking during snow storms," said Newark Public Safety Director Anthony F. Ambrose.

Ambrose advised residents that streets that prohibit parking during a snow storm have signs that say: "No Parking on Snow Covered Roads." Cars parked on those roads will be ticketed and towed.

Snow emergency routes include major arteries, such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, Clinton Avenue, Ferry Street, Bergen Street. A complete map of snow emergency routes is available on the city's GIS website or you can call the 311 Help Center at (973) 733-4311 to hear a recording by ward, or watch Newark Municipal Access Television (Cablevision TV78, FiOS Channel 28).

No parking restrictions are also in place on all Essex County roadways in Newark, including Bloomfield Avenue, Park Avenue, Broadway, Central Avenue, Springfield Avenue, Grove Street, Lyons Avenue and Chancellor Avenue.

On all other streets, residents should park their cars on the side with even house numbers only (examples 38, 116, 354, etc.), to keep the streets clear for snow plows and emergency vehicles. 

Residents are also reminded not shovel snow into the street or into storm sewers. Violators are subject to fines.

Residents are encouraged to park their cars in their driveway and share their driveway with neighbors, if possible. Residents should also clear snow and ice from the sidewalk in front of your storefront or home as well as fire hydrants and storm drains without throwing snow into the street.

Many of Newark's older homes do not have driveways, forcing many residents to park their cars in the stree, making it difficult to plow the streets in a snowstorm.

Last year during a record-breaking January storm that dropped 30 inches of snow, numerous road throughout the city went unplowed for days, forcing Mayor Ras Baraka to issue an apology.
