MAYOR BRONIN ACTIVATES 24-HOURS SNOW PARKING BAN
HARTFORD, CONN. - Mayor Luke Bronin has activated a snow parking ban for the City of Hartford, beginning at 12 noon on Wednesday, March 7th and ending at 12 noon on Thursday, March 8th.
“At this point we expect to get between 8 and 12 inches of snow tomorrow,” said Mayor Bronin. “Please stay off the roads if you can, particularly in the afternoon when snowfall will be heaviest. Residents should feel free to take advantage of the Blue Light Lots and move their cars there tomorrow morning. It is essential that all residents and visitors respect the parking ban so that our Public Works team can work quickly and safely.”
During a snow parking ban, all on-street parking is prohibited throughout the City of Hartford. Any vehicles not removed from City streets by the start of the parking ban will be ticketed and towed. Residents without access to off-street parking may move their vehicles to one of the authorized parking areas including Blue Light Lots, City Parks, Recreation and Senior Centers, and Hartford Public Schools parking lots by the start of the parking ban at 12 noon on Wednesday, March 7th.
To notify the public a parking ban is in effect, sixteen major intersections will be illuminated with blue light beginning 6 hours before the parking ban and they will remain illuminated throughout the duration of the parking ban.
Eleven Blue Light Lots are dedicated solely for use during snow parking bans. These designated Blue Light Lots will provide more parking options for residents who do not have access to off-street parking.
Vehicles must be removed from City Blue Light Lots within six hours after the snow parking ban has been lifted. Vehicles must be removed from Hartford Public Schools lots within two hours.
Mayor Bronin also encouraged residents to sign up to receive alerts from the City of Hartford by registering online at http://www.hartford.gov/emergency-services . “We encourage residents to sign up for these alerts so that they can get timely, important information about what’s happening in the City – including parking bans. We’re not going to overuse this alert system, and you can always decide to unsubscribe.”

Blue Light Lots
- 130 Sisson Ave
- 2434 Main St
