Evanston city officials are asking residents to voluntarily follow parking restrictions during and after tonight’s snow storm.

Although parking restrictions are not in effect at this time, you can assist Public Works crews by voluntarily avoiding parking on main thoroughfares posted as Snow Routes overnight tonight, from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m.

You can help plows clear side streets by voluntarily following posted Snow Emergency parking restrictions on Tuesday and Wednesday. This applies to streets with parking on both sides that are not posted as Snow Routes.

  • Avoid parking on sides of the street with even-numbered addresses on Tues., Jan. 26 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Avoid parking on sides of the street with odd-numbered addresses on Wed., Jan. 27 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

To assist plowing operations and to make parking more convenient for residents, the city is offering free parking in downtown garages from now through Thursday, Jan. 28, at 11:59 p.m. Garages are located at:

  • Sherman Plaza, 821 Davis St.
  • Maple Avenue, 1800 Maple Ave.
  • Church Street, 525 Church St.

Drivers will need to present the ticket they received upon entering the garage in order to exit for free.
