Chief Brian Kyes and the Chelsea Police Department would like to remind residents to follow any parking restrictions that may be temporarily implemented in construction zones throughout the city.
Over the next few months, crews will be completing construction projects throughout Chelsea, including critical upgrades for some of city’s infrastructure.
Work for most projects will be done from Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., unless otherwise posted. Residents are asked to move their vehicles from the designated areas before and during this time in order to ensure the road is cleared and work can safely be completed.
Should a vehicle not be moved prior to the start of construction, it may be towed. Residents are also asked to ensure their vehicle registration information is up to date or leave a note with their contact information on the dashboard of the vehicle in case a vehicle is towed and officers need to contact the owner.
Residents should also be aware of any signs posted in their neighborhoods by the construction companies alerting them to any temporary parking restrictions and the times which those restrictions are in place.
“We recognize the inconvenience this may cause and are grateful for everyone’s help by temporarily moving their vehicles from construction zones during the day, ” Chief Kyes said. “This allows crews to work safely and prevent delays during the construction process while these vital projects are being completed.”
Information about these restrictions can also be found on the city’s website here.
