BRIDGEPORT - Bridgeport officials told residents to get their vehicles off designated emergency routes ahead of the snowstorm.

The move was made in an attempt to avoid a repeat of the parking problems the city experienced during the blizzard last February.

In places where alternate side parking is in effect, drivers are being instructed to park on the even side of the street.

City officials declared a snow emergency at 12:01 a.m. Thursday, well before any other city or town in southwestern Connecticut.
