Residents urged to use off-street parking and follow all parking signage

SCHENECTADY – Mayor Gary McCarthy urged residents to prepare for the forecasted winter storm and priority street parking restrictions. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for Schenectady County with 6-8” of snow forecasted from Monday evening into Tuesday morning.

Residents are strongly urged to utilize off-street parking. The Schenectady Municipal Parking Garage on Broadway (entrance at 407 Hamilton Street) will be offering free parking starting at 5:00pm, Monday, February 27, 2023 until 9:00am, Wednesday, March 1, 2023.

Vehicles parked on priority streets after the accumulation of three inches of snow may be ticketed or towed. Parking on priority streets may resume only after the storm has ended and the entire length of the street has been cleared of snow to the curb.

Priority streets are as follows:

  • Van Vranken Avenue
  • Nott Street (Erie Boulevard to Wendell Avenue)
  • Union Street
  • Eastern Avenue
  • Brandywine Avenue (State Street to Rugby Road)
  • McClellan Street (State Street to Rugby Road)
  • State Street
  • Erie Boulevard (State Street to I-890)
  • Albany Street (Veeder Avenue to Elm Street)
  • Altamont Avenue
  • Schuyler Street (Michigan Avenue to Altamont Avenue)
  • Michigan Avenue
  • Crane Street
  • Chrisler Avenue
  • Broadway (State Street to the city line)
  • Campbell Avenue (Broadway to Fairview Avenue)

In addition to priority street restrictions, drivers must adhere to posted parking signage on all city streets so that plows and salt spreaders may clear the streets as quickly as possible. Residents should also ensure their sidewalks are cleared and handicapped accessible, and to clear one shovel-width of snow around fire hydrants. Snow should not be shoveled or plowed back into the street, Mayor McCarthy added.

The City of Schenectady’s online snowplow tracking system is available to the public on the city website:

Residents can submit non-emergency requests through SeeClickFix and receive status updates on their progress. Submit requests through the city website or download the SeeClickFix app and submit requests on the go:
