Mankato-Due to recent heavy snow, a downtown snow emergency begins at 10 p.m. tonight (Wednesday, December 30) and expires at 8 a.m., Thursday (December 31). Since the snow events were close, only one downtown snow emergency has been called to cause the least amount of inconvenience for residents.

View the downtown snow emergency corridor, which includes:

  • 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), and
  • South Front Street from East Liberty to Marshall streets; and 100 block of east and west Liberty street

The main purpose of a downtown corridor snow emergency is to haul snow out of the downtown because there is limited storage space. A goal during a downtown snow emergency is to completely clear snow of all downtown streets.

When a downtown snow emergency is in effect there is no parking on downtown Mankato streets so snow can be removed quickly and efficiently. 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. The only exception is where streets are posted “seasonal no parking” (which only affects a small amount of streets in the city). View a map showing seasonal no parking areas.  View a video and learn about snow and ice removal operations in Mankato.
