Snow cleanup effort continues

Evanston public works crews will continue work clearing city streets from Saturday’s snow storm today and Monday.

A snow emergency parking ban will be in effect from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. both days.

The odd-numbered sides of residential streets will be cleared today and the even-numbered sides will be cleared on Monday. Violators are subject to ticketing and towing.

Streets and Sanitation Superintendent Suzette Eggleston says Evanston has received over a foot of snow and forecasts are predicting
another 1 to 3 inches for Monday followed by a temperature drop into
the single digits.

"It is imperative that we clear the residential
streets today and tomorrow in advance of these conditions, Eggleston says. "Please
adhere to the parking restrictions and park as close to the curb as
possible to allow plows and emegency vehicles access."

She added, "Although we are not issuing a snow route parking ban for tonight, we
are asking that you avoid parking at metered areas between 9 p.m. and 7 a.m.
for the next few days to allow crews the opportunity to clear the snow."
