Thursday, February 11

Non-emergency vehicles are allowed to travel throughout the city; parking on snow emergency routes is prohibited; Mayor announces additional parking at Johns Hopkins University

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake announced the end of Phase III of the Snow Emergency Plan and the reinstatement of Phase II effective at 5:00 a.m. on Thursday, February 11. Non-emergency vehicles will be permitted to drive on city roads. However, under Phase II, parking is prohibited along designated Snow Emergency Routes in order to facilitate snow plowing and removal. During Phase II, citizens may park at designated school parking lots and city-operated parking lots. The complete parking locations can be found at

“I appreciate the patience of Baltimore’s residents during this Phase III snow emergency,” said Mayor Rawlings-Blake. “With the roads clear, our plows, salt trucks and public safety personnel are better able to move around the city freely and do their jobs without obstruction.”

Citizens who must travel in the coming days are strongly encouraged to drive with extreme caution and maintain a safe distance from all snow equipment.

With the City's reimplementation of a Phase II snow emergency, Mayor Rawlings-Blake thanked Johns Hopkins University for providing additional free parking for city residents near the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus. More information on the Johns Hopkins parking facility can be found at
