Mankato Declares Downtown Snow Emergency

(Mankato, MN) – Due to the 14 inches of snow that fell on Mankato over the weekend, the city has called for a downtown corridor snow emergency.

The downtown snow emergency begins at 10 p.m. tonight (Monday, April 16) and expires at 8 a.m., Tuesday (April 17). The main purpose of a downtown corridor snow emergency is to haul snow out of the downtown because there is limited storage space.

During the downtown snow emergency, parking is not allowed on the streets in the following areas:

  • Madison Avenue to Plum Street; 100 block of east and west sides of Riverfront Drive from Madison Avenue to Plum Street.
  • Main to Liberty streets from South Riverfront Drive to South Broad Street (does not include South Broad Street).
  • South Front Street from East Liberty to Marshall streets; and 100 block of east and west Liberty Street.

Temporary parking is available downtown at no cost in the Mankato Place and Civic Center parking ramps during snow emergencies. Parking is also allowed in yards during a snow emergency.
