Evanston car owners don’t face snow emergency parking rules today. But city officials ask that where possible drivers avoid parking on the odd-numbered side of side streets so crews can plow closer to the curb.
The National Weather Service has issued a watch for another winter storm expected to hit the area from Thursday afternoon through Friday morning.
The weather service says that storm could come largely in the form of ice, although other forecasts suggest it will mainly be in the form of snow.
Streets and Sanitation Superintendent Suzette Eggleston says that tonight crews will remove snow from around the meters in shopping districts. "We
will be posting several locations for no parking from 9 p.m. Wednesday to 6 a.m.
Thursday," Eggleston says.
On Thursday, she says, "We would
appreciate it if you avoid parking on the even side of the street," so crews can finish clearing the snow before the expected Thursday afternoon storm.
