Evanston Public Works Director David Jennings says about five-and-a-half inches of snow had fallen in the city by about noontime today.

But with the snow tapering off, he said, “It is difficult to predict how much more we will get.”

“No decisions have been made on snow parking restrictions this evening, the snow-route parking ban, or during the day on Saturday and Sunday, the snow emergency rules,” Mr. Jennings said.

He added that he hoped to have a better idea whether those restrictions will have to be imposed by mid-afternoon.

“We have had trucks on the street continuously since about 10 last night and the arterials have been the focus, which is where we always start.  As they are cleared to bare pavement, we move to residentials and clear the travel lanes on those streets,” Mr. Jennings said.
