The Montevideo City Council on Monday night approved the recommendation of the Traffic Safety Committee to implement new parking restrictions around Ramsey Elementary School. The action was taken in response to concerns from residents regarding severe congestion during drop off and pick up times, which could be dangerous for students.

The committee recommended implementing a no parking policy on school days between 7am and 4:30pm for the following streets:

  • Hamilton Avenue – south side – from 4th Street to 6th Street
  • North 4th Street – west side – from Hamilton Avenue to Ost Avenue

The policy will take effect whenever the new signs are posted.
