No parking is permitted on Hartford streets from 8 p.m. on Monday, March 13 through 8 a.m. on Wednesday, March 15, 2017.
Vehicles remaining on roadways during this time are subject to ticketing and towing. A towing experience will cost you around $200, for the towing and the ticketing. Those whose vehicles get towed should call the HPD at (860) 757-4000 to learn where to retrieve their vehicles.
Residents in need of off-street parking have a number of options and should move vehicles to those lots before the ban begins. You can use any of the Hartford district school lots and park lots (Colt, Elizabeth, Pope, Keney, Goodwin, Foster Heights, Hyland, and Rocky Ridge), along with the following:
- 130 Sisson Ave.
- 2404 Main St.
- 11 Flower St.
- 50 Curcombe St.
- 2 Holcomb St.
- 80 Coventry St.
- 2621 Main St.
- 680 Franklin Ave.
After the ban is lifted, vehicles — especially those parked at school lots — need to be moved promptly.
Notice of this ban has been posted on social media. Automated calls have been made to residents. You can sign up to receive alerts from City of Hartford; the alert has been texted out already. Additionally, residents can learn when a parking ban is in effect by paying attention to the flashing blue lights installed at sixteen major intersections throughout the city. The purpose of a parking ban is to allow for plows to clear as much snow as possible from the roadway.
