Update: 2/21/15 4:00 pm
The parking restrictions will be reviewed by our Traffic Division and other city officials when the Snow Emergency is lifted. We anticipate that many, if not all, will remain in effect. Be sure to check back once the Snow Emergency has been lifted for details.
The Salem Police announce the following parking and traffic restrictions that will remain in effect until further notice. Due to the large amount of snow on city streets and in the interest of public safety we will be implementing a series of "Temporary One Way Streets" as well as maintaining "No Parking Either Side" on certain streets and "No Parking on Odd Side" on all residential streets. We realize these restrictions pose an inconvenience to many residents and plan to lift them as soon as possible
Temporary One Way Streets
Some streets in the city are no longer capable of safely handling normal two way traffic due to snow accumulation. By order of the Salem Police Department these streets have been declared "One Way" until further notice as of Tuesday, February 17, 2015 at 7:00 am. Signage will be posted on the designated streets to inform motorists of the change.
No Parking Either Side
The "No Parking Either Side" restriction on certain streets remains in effect until further notice. Residents should park vehicles on the even side of residential streets not affected by this restriction in their neighborhood, on entrance corridors, or in off street lots until further notice.
No Parking on Odd Side
The Salem Police are maintaining the citywide "No Parking on Odd Side" of residential streets restriction until further notice. Residents should park vehicles on the even side of residential streets. If a street regularly does not allow parking on the even side of the street, continue to follow normal parking restrictions. In the event that parked vehicles do not allow for 12 feet of clearance in the street, no parking is allowed. Vehicles impeding the passage of emergency vehicles will be ticketed and towed.
The City of Salem is making many lots throughout the city available for residents impacted by the parking restrictions. Click Here for a complete list of off street parking locations
