During Snow Emergencies, all city residents are ordered to heed alternate side of the street parking rules. On even days, residents should park their cars on the even numbered side of the street. (i.e. On January 12, residents should park on the even # side of the street.)
Parking is not permitted on any designated snow emergency streets. The parking ban ensures that plows and public safety crews can clear the streets.

For Immediate Release
January 18, 2019
Mayor Ganim Declares Snow Emergency for City of Bridgeport Beginning at 7:00 A.M. January 19, 2019
No Parking on Snow Emergency Streets; ODD Side of the Street Parking on All Other Roadways
Bridgeport, CT – In anticipation of the pending snowfall due to impact Bridgeport, Mayor Joe Ganim is declaring a snow emergency for the city to take effect at 7:00 a.m., January 19, 2019. During the snow emergency, residents must move their cars off posted snow emergency streets. January 19 is an ODD number day; therefore, residents should park on the side of the street with addresses that are ODD numbers. Snow emergency streets are marked with white signs with red lettering.

No parking is allowed on snow emergency streets. Vehicles left on snow emergency streets after the ban goes into effect will be subject to fines and towing. Snow emergency parking areas are available throughout the City.
For secondary roads, as the storm date is January 19, an ODD number day, cars must be parked on ODD side of the street.
The easiest way to tell the ODD- or EVEN- numbered side of a street is to check the street address of buildings. If the address ends in an ODD number (1, 3, 5, 7, 9) then that building is on the ODD side of the street. If the address ends in an EVEN number (0, 2, 4, 6, 8) then that building is on the EVEN side of the street. On a normal day, the even and odd corresponds to the day of the week – for example, the day of January 19 is an ODD number.
