Tow warning signs will be posted on four City streets so crews residents can remove their cars to facilitate cleanup of storm debris on Friday, Aug. 21, 2020, and Monday, Aug. 24, 2020.

The four streets scheduled for storm debris cleanup with temporarily prohibited parking are:

  • Van Buren Street and Johnson Street, both from Burlington to Bowery streets, on Friday, Aug. 21, 2020
  • Lucas Street and Governor Street, both from Burlington to Bowery streets, on Monday, Aug. 24, 2020

Signs will be posted on Van Buren and Johnson that they are tow-away areas on Wednesday, Aug. 19, 2020. Additional signs will be posted on Lucas and Governor on Thursday, Aug. 20, 2020. 

Cars should be removed from streets before 7:30 a.m. to allow crews to completely clear the area of collected storm debris. Cars that are found parked on the street during this time will be subject to towing. It is anticipated that regular on street parking will resume at 5 p.m. the same day. 

The temporary ban of on street parking is required for public safety, staff safety, and to speed the debris removal process.

Residents impacted by these road closures can utilize the Chauncey Swan Parking Ramp, 460 E. Washington St., at no charge on Friday and Monday. Parking will not be allowed on the rooftop or any spaces signed as reserved. 

Anyone with questions about the cleanup should call the Streets department at 319-356-5181.
