We have information about restricted streets in some of the busier parts of Boston. Check back here for the latest updates ahead of September 1.

From August 31 to September 2, some common moving locations are blocked off to allow for moving truck dropoffs. We have more information on those locations below.

Keep in mind:
  • You are not allowed to park on the streets listed on this page. However, you can park your moving truck or personal car while you are actively unloading your vehicle. You just can't remain parked on the street.
  • Please remember to check the signs posted on the street when you park. While this page is a good resource, the street signs will always have the most up-to-date information.
