    New Haven police closed several roads on Monday due to icing and flooding.

    Over the next two days, crews in the City of New Haven will focus on clearing streets from curb to curb and removing the massive piles of plowed snow from city streets.

    Nighttime tow and plow operations will cover the area of the city east of the Boulevard and west of the Quinnipiac River, (shaded green in the map below) an older section of the city that tends to have more narrow streets and limited off-street parking options.

    City officials are asking all residents to park on the even side of the street overnight for the next two nights.

    Daytime operations will clear the areas west of the Boulevard and the areas east of the Quinnipiac River, (unshaded on the map) which has wider streets and many off-street parking options. If residents remove their cars from the street, city officials do not anticipate having to tow in these areas.

    Tow and plow operation for cars that are parked on the odd side of the street.

    Residents of all streets east of the Boulevard and west of the Quinnipiac River are to park on the even side of the street on Wednesday and Thursday nights on Wednesday from 6 p.m. to Thursday morning at 6 a.m. and on Thursday, from 6 p.m. to Friday at 6 a.m.

    Cars that are parked on the odd side of the streets listed above will be subject to tagging and towing.

    Areas of the city not listed above will be cleared during the day on Thursday and Friday.

    Since these areas have many off-street parking options, city officials are asking residents to park in their driveway.
