The City of Evanston has declared a Snow Route Parking Ban for tonight, Wednesday, March 5, 2014. Community members are requested to park according to the red, white and blue signs on the streets to allow the City to effectively clear the snow. Emergency sirens will sound at 8:15 p.m. to remind community members to move their cars. 

During the Snow Route Parking Ban, main thoroughfares in Evanston designated as Snow Routes (map here>>>) will be cleared first, and parking is illegal on these streets between 11 p.m. on Wed., March 5 through 6 a.m. on Thurs., March 6.

Even if plows have been through, snow removal operations may require return visits by City trucks. During a Snow Route Parking Ban, vehicles are subject to ticketing, towing and storage charges.
