Evanston Public Works Director David Jennings says city crews are working today to clean the even-numbered sides of streets, after working overnight on snow emergency routes to get ready for the morning rush hour.

Snow parking restrictions will continue Thursday so crews can clear the odd-numbered side of residential streets.

Today parking is prohibited until 9 p.m. on the even-numbered side of most residential streets, which includes those with parking on both sides and many one-sided parking streets. Signs are posted where the regulations are in effect.

Mr. Jennings says that when parking is prohibited to allow cleaning of the “normally legal” side of one-sided parking streets, the parking restriction on the other side is not waived – this means that parking is not allowed on either side of the street during this time period.

On Thursday, Feb. 15, parking will be prohibited between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. on the odd-numbered side of streets. Signs are posted where the regulations apply.

Violators are subject to ticketing and towing.

Sirens will sound at 7:15 am and 12:15 pm to alert people of the snow emergency.
