Seasonal odd and even parking restrictions in parts of downtown Syracuse take effect on November 1, 2021. On certain blocks, overnight on-street parking will alternate and be limited to one side.  The requirements allow snow plows to effectively clear the streets unobstructed by parked cars between the hours of 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.

The seasonal restrictions create easier and safer access routes for vehicles and pedestrians. Permanent posted signage ensures downtown residents and visitors have clear instruction on where parking is allowed on public streets, reducing the need for ticketing and towing.

Overnight parking is restricted to alternate sides on certain streets in downtown Syracuse to allow effective snow clearance during the winter months.

Signage marking the parking changes and listing the hours for alternate parking is in place the following areas:

Near Hanover Square

  • 100 & 200 blocks of Erie Blvd E.
  • 100 & 200 blocks of E. Water St.
