Burlington, VT – A winter PARKING BAN will go into effect tonight at 10pm. With very low temperatures forecast over the next few days, salt will be much less effective. Therefore, while the main roads are in decent shape, crews will be devoting extra attention to neighborhood roads and sidewalks. Public Works appreciates your help as crews continue clearing roads and sidewalks through the night. Free parking is available in city owned garages (see below).
Be sure to check 802-658-SNOW for updates tomorrow or keep your eye on the lights. Bans are always called by 3PM. Please travel safely and stay warm!
