BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — After a foot of snow fell on the city in a storm Saturday, Bridgeport is asking all residents who park their cars in the street to continue to park their cars on the odd-numbered side of the streets.
This parking rule will remain in effect until further notice. In order for plows to clear the streets, the cars must remain on the same side of the street, the city said in a statement.
Parking on snow emergency streets is still banned, and this will remain in effect until further notice. Any cars parked on snow emergency streets will be towed. A full list of snow emergency streets can be found online at www.bridgeportct.gov/bptsnow .
Commercial and residential property owners are responsible for clearing snow from the sidewalks in front of their buildings, the city said. Any property owners who fail to clear snow in front of their properties can face a fine of $100. It is also a violation of city ordinances to shovel snow into the street. Anyone found doing that can also face a fine of $100.
Residents may call the Bridgeport Emergency Operations Center hotline at 203-579-3829 with any snow related emergencies. Snow emergency parking areas are available throughout the City. A full list of parking areas can be found online .
