Iowa City Bans Parking on Some Streets to Clear Snow

IOWA CITY, Iowa - Iowa City needs some room to plow its streets.

The frequent snow fall of late is causing the city to ban parking on several streets near the center of town over two days this week so plows can get through and clear away accumulated snow and ice, according to a news release.

The streets are east of downtown where many college students live and on-street parking is common.

Plowing will begin on the following streets at 8 a.m. Feb. 13

• Iowa Avenue from Gilbert Street to Muscatine Avenue (south side only)

• Washington Street from Van Buren Street to Muscatine Avenue, (north side only)

• College Street from Van Buren Street to Summit Street (south side only)

Crews will be on these streets Feb. 14:

• Jefferson Street from Gilbert Street to Evans Street (south side only)

• Iowa Avenue from Gilbert Street to Muscatine Avenue (north side only)

• Washington Street from Van Buren Street to Pearl Street (south side only)

• College Street from Van Buren Street to Summit Street (north side only)

Violators will be towed at their own expense.
