The city has issued a traffic advisory for Wednesday's Stanley Cup game, with a parking ban on the streets around Fenway Park/Kenmore Square, Fanueil Hall, and North Station.

According to the city, the restrictions are similar to those posted for the Bruins' Monday evening home game, and hockey fans are urged to use public transportation to Stanley Cup celebrations.

“These parking regulations are designed to ensure safety and accessibility in the city during and after the Boston Bruins game,” Boston Transportation Commissioner Thomas J. Tinlin said in a press release. “This is an exciting time for hockey fans but we must remember to act responsibly and enjoy the experience in a positive manner.”

From 6 p.m. to 2 a.m., signs will indicate that the following streets are tow zones, with no stopping permitted:

In the North Station Area: Beverly Street, from Causeway Street to North Washington Street; Canal Street, from Causeway Street to New Chardon Street; Causeway Street, from North Washington Street to Merrimac Street; Friend Street, from Causeway Street to New Chardon Street; Haverhill Street, from Causeway Street to North Washington Street; Lancaster Street, from Causeway Street to Merrimac Street; Medford Street, from North Washington Street to Causeway Street; Merrimac Street, from Causeway Street to New Chardon Street; Portland Street, from Merrimac Street to Causeway Street; and
Rip Valenti Way, from Merrimac Street to North Washington Street.

In the Fenway/Kenmore Square area: Brookline Avenue, from Yawkey Way to Commonwealth Avenue; Burlington Avenue, from Brookline Avenue to End; Fullerton Street, from Brookline Avenue to End; Beacon Street, from Bay State Rd. to Deerfield Street; Commonwealth Avenue, from Brookline Avenue to Kenmore Street; Kilmarnock Street, from Boylston Street to Brookline Avenue; Lansdowne Street, from Brookline Avenue to Ipswich Street; Overland Street, from Brookline Avenue to End; Van Ness Street, from Ipswich Street to Kilmarnock Street; and Yawkey Way, from Boylston Street to Brookline Avenue.

In the Fanueil Hall area: Hanover Street, from Congress Street to Surface Road; North Street, from Congress Street to Surface Road; and Union Street, from North Street to Hanover Street.

Signs will read “Tow Zone No Stopping Boston Police Special Event, Wednesday 6 PM – 2 AM," the city said, and vehicles in violation will be ticketed and towed. The city said the Boston Police Department might further restrict parking and pedestrian access for safety reasons.
