Snow Prompts Rush-Hour Worries For Some


Updated: Dec. 18, 2013 @ 1:35 p.m.

HARTFORD — The current forecast is calling for the snow to become moderate by mid-afternoon and continue through the afternoon rush hour. Total snowfall is currently forecast to range from 3″-5″ in Western Connecticut and 4″-6″ in Eastern Connecticut.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy partially activated the state’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) at 1:00 p.m. today to monitor storm conditions across the state heading into the afternoon rush hour.

Last week, Mayor Pedro E. Segarra declared a snow emergency parking ban for the City of Hartford. Current forecasts for that time period predict snowfall from 6-10 inches, along with possible icing. But there was no parking ban for Tuesday.

During a snow emergency parking ban, all on-street parking is prohibited throughout the city. Official said any vehicles not removed from city streets by the start of the parking ban will be ticketed and towed.

Residents without access to off-street parking should move their vehicles to one of the following authorized parking areas before the start of the parking ban:

  • 2 Holcomb Street Lot
  • Keney Park Entrance Lot—Ridgefield Street
  • KDA Center Lot—Naugatuck Street
  • Pope Park Center Lot—Park Terrace
  • Metzner Center Lot—Franklin Avenue
  • Colt Park Lot—Wawarme Avenue
  • Elizabeth Park Lots
  • All Hartford Schools Parking Lots

Residents should remove their vehicles from these lots promptly following the end of the parking ban. All Hartford Schools lots must be vacated by 12:30pm Sunday, December 15. Residents whose vehicles are towed during the parking ban should contact the Hartford Police Department at (860) 757-4000.
