PROVIDENCE, RI – A citywide parking ban will remain in effect until 5:00AM on March 14. Residents with overnight parking passes are advised that they cannot park on the street during the duration of the citywide parking ban. All vehicles parked on the street in violation of the citywide parking ban will be ticketed and towed to ensure that roadways can be plowed in the wake of the snow storm.
All Providence Public Schools, with the exception of Classical, Central, Mount Pleasant and Alvarez High Schools, will observe a two-hour delay Wednesday morning. First Student and RIPTA bus routes will be adjusted accordingly. Classical, Central, Mount Pleasant and Alvarez High Schools will open at 10AM. Morning prekindergarten classes have been canceled. Full day pre-K and afternoon pre-K will be held as usual. The morning session of the Sunrise Program at Robert F. Kennedy Elementary school is cancelled. All recreation centers will open normal operating hours at 3PM.
Trash collection will resume on Wednesday, March 14 and be on a holiday schedule, meaning that pick-up will be delayed by one day throughout the week. Property owners are reminded that they are required to remove snow and ice from sidewalks, catch basins, fire hydrants and pedestrian ramps adjacent to their property. Residents are urged not to shovel snow onto roadways after streets have been plowed.
