Folks in Bangor will be happy to know that the winter parking rules are done for the season.

No more odd-even parking. No more overnight parking bans, hopefully. Bangor's winter parking rules have ended for the season.

This winter, through March 25, Bangor piled up 109 inches of snow according to the National Weather Service in Caribou. In comparison, last winter the city saw 79.6 inches of snow. The winter storms prompted 16 parking bans in Downtown Bangor.

Bangor drivers won't have to worry about the winter parking rules until the first snow storm of next winter. Normally November 1 marks the start of the city's winter parking rules. However, the law of the land was changed last November.

Now Bangor Police and Bangor Public Works will make the decision as to when the rules will go into effect. After they go into effect, they will stay in place until March 31.
