No Parking

On designated sweeping days, parking is prohibited at various times along marked DCR streets and parkways. “No parking” signs have been installed at specific DCR locations, noting the day and hours that parking is prohibited. Massachusetts State Police will enforce the parking restrictions, and cars in violation will be towed. If your car has been towed, contact the nearest state police station for information on retrieval.
