Parking Ban Update for Sunday, January 24, 2021, 6:30 p.m.

City of Lincoln Winter Operations Snow Emergency Begins 12:01 AM Monday

A snow emergency has been declared for the City of Lincoln. It will begin at 12:01 AM Monday, January 25, 2021. 

Parking Bans: Beginning Monday, January 25, 2021 at 8:00 AM, parking will be banned on both sides of all emergency snow routes, bus and school routes and major arterial streets.  A map of these routes is available at

Residential Parking Ban: Beginning Monday, January 25, 2021 at 8:00 AM, a residential parking ban will be in effect.  At that time, parking will be banned on the odd-numbered sides of residential streets – that’s generally the south and west sides of the street.  Parking will be permitted on the even sides of residential streets.

Even if your side of the street appears to be cleared, do not park there until the ban is officially terminated because crews sometimes need to make more than one pass down that side of the street.


When clearing sidewalks, residents should also clear crosswalks, curb cuts and access to fire hydrants. The City reminds residents that it is illegal to push or blow snow into or on any street, alley or sidewalk, and violators are subject to a fine.

Snow Angels:

If you would like to volunteer to shovel snow for those who are unable to do so themselves, visit or call 402-441-7644 during regular business hours.
