Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin issued a parking ban today in the City of Hartford beginning at 11 a.m. on Sunday. Mayor Bronin said the parking ban will be lifted on Monday at 8 a.m.
The parking ban prohibits on-street parking throughout the city. Crews will ticket and tow cars parked illegally during that window of time.
In order to combat the problem, the City of Hartford allows for drivers to park their cars in specified parking lots, called Blue Light Lots, which were implemented this year.
“Blue lights have been installed at 16 major intersections. The lights will be illuminated 6 hours before a parking ban takes effect and will remain illuminated throughout the duration of the parking ban,” said Mayor Bronin in a release.
Residents are also reminded to remove their cars promptly following the termination of the ban.
City parks, recreation and senior centers are also available for parking while the parking ban in in effect. Blue Light Lots are located at the following intersections:
