With snow falling almost non stop since Sunday, the City of Minneapolis this afternoon declared a snow emergency.

Starting at 9 p.m. today, cars will not be allowed to be parked on either side of snow emergency route streets. From 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. tomorrow, cars should only park on the odd side of non-snow emergency route streets, and from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday, cars should only park on the even side of non-snow emergency route streets.

Cars parked on the wrong sides of streets will be ticketed and towed.
