Newport City Council, with recommendation from the Department of Public Services, recently increased the number of roads where parking bans are established during snow emergencies from 9 to 24 to give them the ability to better serve residents during winter events and will improve general snow removal relating services during and after storm events.
The list has been pared down over several years from a much longer list that once included 69 streets as far back as 1978.
When a parking ban is in effect, parking on the following streets is not permitted. Motor vehicles parked on any street one-half hour after a parking ban has been announced may be towed.
- Bellevue Avenue
- Thames Street
- Spring Street
- Summer Street
- Friendship Street
- Washington Square
- Van Zandt Ave (JT Connell Hwy to Malbone)
- Dr. Marcus Wheatland Blvd.
- Kay Street
- Powell Avenue
- Annandale Road
- Gibbs Avenue
- Washington Street
- Gould Street
- East Bowery Street
- William Street
- Farewell Street
- West Narragansett Avenue
- Coggeshall Avenue
- Third Street
- Warner Street
- Bedlow Avenue
- Bliss Road
Gateway Center, Mary Street lot, and Easton’s Beach are all usually free of charge for residents to park at during a parking ban.
