The Pullman Police Department will limit parking during fall, winter and spring breaks on parts of College Hill to make road maintenance easier during poor weather conditions.

It is difficult for Pullman Maintenance and Operations staff to remove snow, ice and debris when cars are parked on the narrow roads, according to a Pullman PD press release. This can be hazardous and make it more difficult for drivers and emergency vehicles to get through.

Drivers may be ticketed for parking between 2-9 a.m. on main portions of College Hill roads during the breaks, according to the release. Fall break is Nov. 22-26; winter break is Dec. 20 through Jan. 7, and spring break is March 14-18.

WSU Transportation Services will provide alternative parking in the signed portion of the Blue 1 parking lot, across from the South Fairway Playfield. Students wishing to park there must send their name, WSU ID number, personal contact information, license plate number, state, make and color of vehicle to transportation@wsu.edu.

According to the press release, streets with restricted parking are:

  • NE Colorado Street from NE D Street to NE Opal Street
  • NE Campus Street from NE Opal Street to NE B Street
  • NE B Street from NE Colorado Street to NE California Street
  • NE California Street from NE B Street to NE Ruby Street
  • NE Maiden Lane from NE Whitman Street to NE Opal Street
  • NE D Street from NE Colorado Street to NE Alpha Road
  • NE C Street from NE Colorado Street to NE Alpha Road
  • NE A Street from NE Colorado Street to California Street
  • Maple Street from Campus to NE Colorado Street
  • NE Linden Street from NE B Street to NE Monroe Street
