To deal with our latest snow storm, Evanston officials have issued  a snow route parking ban for tonight and Thursday.

That means parking will be banned on main roads posted with snow route signs from 11 p.m. tonight to 6 p.m. Thursday and again from 11 p.m. Thursday to 6 a.m. Friday.

Public Works Director Suzette Robinson says the city will also impose snow emergency alternate side parking restrictions on residential streets from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday and Friday.

It has 8 inches of snow on the roof and is buried almost to the top of the hood by snow.
