The city of Bethlehem has declared a snow emergency beginning at 7 p.m. tonight, Tuesday.

During a snow emergency, snow emergency routes in the city have restricted parking on one side of the street that alternates every day of the emergency.

All vehicles parking on snow emergency routes must obey the posted snow emergency signs for that street or their vehicle will be ticketed and the vehicle will be towed at the owner’s expense, police say.  City parking garages are available for free parking for the duration of the snow emergency.

On a blog post, Bethlehem police said the snow emergency is expected to last until some time Wednesday afternoon.

If you must park on an emergency route, police advise you to follow the signs and be aware that the side of the street will alternate at 7 a.m. and the vehicle will have to be moved again to avoid being ticketed and towed.

I've looked around online but can't seem to find a map of the designated snow emergency routes in town. Are there any publicly available maps for these?
