New Hope Police announce winterfest parade traffic closures

From the New Hope Police Department:

“As part of traffic control and security measures which New Hope Police will implement for the 2013 Winter Festival parade on January 26, 2013, the following road closures and restrictions will be in effect for much of the morning and part of the afternoon on that day.

“Access to the New Hope-Lambertville Free Bridge, via East Bridge Street, will be closed to vehicle traffic from 12:00 noon to approximately 1:00 p.m.

“West Bridge Street from Kiltie Drive to West Ferry Street will be closed to vehicle traffic from 11:45 a.m. to approximately 1:00 p.m., and West Bridge Street from West Ferry Street to Main Street will be closed to vehicle traffic from 12:00 noon to approximately 1:00 p.m.  Persons wishing to access Union Square by vehicle during that time may do so via Hardy Bush Way.

“South Main Street from Bridge Street to West Ferry Street and North Main Street from Bridge Street to West Randolph Street will be closed to vehicle traffic from 12:00 noon to approximately 1:00 p.m.

“In addition to these road closures and restrictions, all parking meters on West Bridge Street will be bagged “No Parking” starting at approximately 11:00 p.m. on Friday, January 25, 2013.  Any vehicle which is parked in a bagged parking space as of 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 26, 2013, will be removed by police at the owner’s expense.  Metered parking regulations will be suspended on January 26, 2013 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  Any person whose residential parking space falls within the restricted area may, therefore, park at any metered space within the Borough, without charge, during that time.  After 2:00 p.m., enforcement of all parking regulations will resume.

“Persons who will be affected by these road closures and/or parking restrictions should take appropriate action prior to the start of the parade.  Once the parade begins, Police cannot guarantee that persons will be able to arrive at or depart from the affected areas.  Informational signs and detour arrows will be placed at locations throughout the Borough to assist motorists in avoiding the parade route.

“Any questions regarding these measures should be directed to New Hope Police at 215-862-3033.”
