Newburyport ends parking ban

NEWBURYPORT — Motorists can go back to parking on the streets of Newburyport.

The snow-related parking restrictions that went in place Friday were lifted this afternoon, allowing residents and visitors to resume parking in all public lots, metered spaces and streets, according to local police.

The parking ban, which was originally expected to end yesterday at 8 a.m., was instead extended indefinitely to give the Department of Public Services additional time to widen snow-clogged streets and remove snow from municipal parking lots.

The ban was first issued Friday at 2 p.m. to keep as many cars off the roads as possible as the region braced for what turned out to be a massive storm, dumping nearly 2 feet of snow beginning Friday afternoon and well into Saturday.

City officials remind motorists to remain vigilant in not blocking traffic or hampering snow removal efforts. Those who do hinder traffic will continue to be ticketed and towed. Motorists are also strongly urged to utilize off-street parking spots wherever available.
