Weekend Parking in the Flats East Bank, Warehouse District Just Became More Challenging

The case for biking, Ubering or taking public transportation down to the Flats East Bank and Warehouse District areas for a weekend night of debauchery has never been so strong, as the City of Cleveland has opted to ban much of the available street parking on Friday and Saturdays.

The city officially announced the restrictions yesterday, saying they may only last until the end of the summer. In the meantime, signs will let drivers know where they can and cannot park.

Any car found parked in the following areas from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. on weekends will be towed:

Old River Road from Main Avenue to St. Clair Avenue
West 10th Street from Main Avenue to St. Clair Avenue
West 9th Street from Front Street to Superior Avenue
West 6th Street from Lakeside Avenue to Superior Avenue
West 3rd Street from Lakeside Avenue to Superior Avenue
St. Clair Avenue from West 9th Street to West 3rd Street
Lakeside Avenue from West 6th Street to West 3rd Street

Although these restrictions mean a night out will take more planning, the city has implemented them so emergency vehicles can safely access the increasingly popular areas. And, of course, for those willing to pay, parking lots are still available.
