Hartford's parking agency has announced its revised holiday parking and reduced-fee schedule for some of its metered spaces.

Beginning this Friday through Jan. 7, the Hartford Parking Authority (HPA) has designated certain downtown streets surrounding Bushnell Park as available for free parking during the period, HPA Operations Director Kenya Smith announced Tuesday.

The specific streets with free daytime metered parking during Winterfest are: Elm Street from Trinity Street to Hudson Street; Trinity from Elm to Jewell Street; and Jewell from Trinity to Trumbull Street.

Modified parking for some other streets include: No-parking restrictions are lifted from 3:30 to 6 p.m. on Trinity Street. Restrictions remain in effect on Elm Street.

As always, legal on-street parking in the city is free after 6 p.m. weekdays and all day on weekends, Smith said.

Additional free off-street parking is available after 5 p.m. at the State of Connecticut surface parking lots on West Street and along Capitol Avenue, HPA said. Additional paid off-street parking is available near Pulaski Circle.
