Portion of Jefferson Street to be marked for Snow Emergencies

New signs to go up next week

TIFFIN, Ohio – July 1, 2022 – In order to promote wintertime traffic safety, the City of Tiffin is expanding its snow emergency streets to include the west side on-street parking lane of Jefferson Street from Coe Street to Main Street. The east side on-street parking lane will remain available during snow events.

City of Tiffin Public Works plans to install signs on Jefferson Street next week, and the City asks residents in that neighborhood to plan ahead for parking options during winter storms.

Parking is restricted on designated streets during snow emergencies or when snow exceeds two inches (Ord. 303.08-A). These restrictions are in place to allow for snow plows to more easily clear the roads.

Other streets with parking bans during snow events are clearly marked with signs and are located in and near Downtown Tiffin, and include South Washington Street, Madison Street, East Market Street and East Perry Street.

In the event of heavy snow fall, vehicles parked along designated snow emergency routes can and will be towed.

CAPTION:

A sign designates East Market Street as a snow emergency route, with parking prohibited during snow events.
