ROCHESTER, Minn. - Overnight parking is not allowed in downtown Rochester from midnight to 8 AM February 10th and 11th.
This is to allow Rochester Public Works to safely and properly clear accumulated snow from the weekend's snowfall. Leaving the piles of snow downtown can cause issues for cars, pedestrians, and cyclists.
"It just gets difficult for everybody to move whether you're in a vehicle or on foot," says Megan Moeller, communications coordinator of Rochester Public Works.
Cars parked downtown can be ticketed or towed.
