Parking Ban for DCR parkways in all other communities lifted at midnight

Skating Rinks Reopen Thursday, January 29, 2015

DCR will lift the snow emergency and parking ban for DCR roadways within the City of Boston this evening (Wednesday, January 28) at 5 p.m.  The parking ban for all other DCR roadways will be lifted  at midnight.  

Residents in South Boston who parked at DCR’s Castle Island parking lot, and residents who parked in Lot #7 and #8 at DCR’s Nantasket Beach facility may remain in the lot until 24 hours after the parking ban is lifted.

DCR skating rink facilities will reopen on Thursday, January 29, 2015 on their normal Thursday schedule.

DCR reminds residents if they reside in a town that is quarantined for the Asian Longhorned Beetle (ALB), fallen wood debris from ALB host trees may not be moved outside of the quarantine. ALB host trees are quarantined in areas regulated for the beetle, and therefore cannot leave a regulated area unless chipped by person who has a compliance agreement with the ALB  eradication program.
