Brace for Winter Weather

wp_20160205_121cropBe prepared for snow and freezing temps this weekend! Follow these tips to stay safe and warm.

Travel info:

  • At 8 AM on Sunday, January 8th, the city lifted its on-street parking ban. Register for the city’s emergency notification system, CodeRED, to get regular updates.
  • If you’re planning to take RIPTA, visit the website for delays, detours, and other changes to bus service. It’s also a great resource for winter weather tips!
  • Pedestrians should be able to walk throughout downtown. Property owners, please note that you must clear the sidewalks in front of your property! DID safety ambassadors will help out by removing snow from curb cuts.
  • For more information, review the winter weather preparedness guide on the Rhode Island Emergency Management Agency’s website.
