A snow route parking ban will be in effect from 11 p.m. tonight until 6 a.m. Wednesday morning in Evanston.
Parking will be prohibited on all snow routes and violators will be ticketed and towed. Snow routes are the major streets and are marked with snow route signs.
Three to four inches of snow have accumulated on snow routes. Another one to two inches is expected tonight and another one to three inches tomorrow. Temperatures are expected to dip to about 5 degrees by tomorrow night so, city officials say, it is important to remove the snow to prevent icy buildups.
