As of December 1, 2014, parking will only be permitted on the odd numbered side of a street on odd numbered calendar days and only on the even numbered side of a street on even numbered calendar days beginning at 1:00 a.m. until 6:00 a.m.  This means that when you park your car in the evening of an odd numbered day, it should be parked on the even side of the street because it will be an even day as of 1:00 a.m.   If parking is presently allowed on only one side of the street during the day, parking will be permitted on that side of the street every night. In addition, there is no overnight parking permitted on the circular portions of dead-end cul-de-sacs.  Those in violation of this ordinance will be subject to a $25.00 fine.


Upon declaration of a Snow Emergency, vehicles must be removed from the City streets.  Snow Emergencies take effect from the time determined by the Director. Typically, 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. Earlier start times and later end times may be set during unusually heavy storms.  Any vehicle parked in violation of a Snow Emergency Declaration will be removed and impounded.  More information about Parking availability during a Snow Emergency can be found on the Snow Emergency page.

You can be notified of Snow Emergencies by signing up at www.manchesternh.gov/snow for automatic email or text notifications. During snow emergencies, snow emergency beacons flash at various traffic intersections throughout the City.  Snow emergencies are also announced on local news and radio stations but feel free to call the Department of Public Works as 603-624-6444.


The Highway Division has conducted an assessment of pavement conditions along city streets.  For a summary of the results, see the street condition map and the pavement assessment presentation made to the Board of Mayor and Aldermen on January 6, 2015.
