TRIBECA — Good news, drivers: More parking is on the way to TriBeCa.

The Department of Transportation will do away with prohibitive parking regulations on about 11 blocks in the northwestern corner of the neighborhood.

Streets that have long had "No Standing Anytime" signs, or rules that cut off public parking for much of the day, will switch to alternate-side parking, which allows for parking anytime except for the few hours a week when there's street cleaning.

Here are the proposed changes, in turquoise:

The new parking signs will go up within the next three months, said DOT project manager Jennifer Leung, at a recent Community Board 1 meeting.

The new rules are in keeping with how TriBeCa has changed over the years, from manufacturing to more residential, Leung said.

The DOT is still reviewing parking regulations in TriBeCa, and will continue to look for blocks to add alternate-side parking, Leung said.
