Frequently Asked Questions

How do I find the odd or even side of the street?

Check the address

The easiest way to tell the odd- or even-numbered side of a street is to check the street address of buildings.

If the address ends in an even number ( 0, 2, 4, 6, 8), then that building is on the EVEN side of the street ( Example: house address number: 135 6 Maple or 251 2 17 th Ave.).

If the address ends in an odd number ( 1, 3, 5, 7, 9), then that building is on the ODD side of the street ( example: house address number: 135 9 Maple or 251 3 17 th Ave .).

No address to check?

If there are no buildings on the street, it is harder to know which is the odd side or even-numbered side.

Our best advice is to ask neighbors or business owners to let you know which side is which before you park. If you have a question about a specific street, please feel free to call the Public Works Street Division at (612) 673-5720.
