Evanston City Manager Wally Bobkiewicz says the city will have a mandatory snow route parking ban in effect overnight tonight.

And there will be mandatory alternate side parking restrictions on residential streets during the day Wednesday and Thursday.

It’s all designed to help clean up after a lake-effect snow storm dumped a greater-than-expected six inches of snow on the city overnight.

Update 9:45 a.m.: Assistant Public Works Director James Maiworm says crews are now working to plow all the residential streets in the City.

“We expect to have all residential streets plowed as open as possible to allow residents to move their cars for the upcoming snow emergency and snow route parking ban, Maiworm said.

This afternoon, he says, crews will re-plow and salt the main streets to take advantage of the sunshine which will help make salt more effective in these cold temperatures with the goal of clear safe roads for this evenings rush hour.

  1. What about Fowler Avenue?

    I live in the area of Fowler Ave (15 – 16 hundred block) and I am a shame to say that the snow has not been plowed for a while. Cars are still in the same parking spots with snow topped roofs. When it rained was the only time it looked as the streets of the 15 and 16 hundred block(s) of Fowler Ave had been done. WHAT IS GOING ON ??. You go down the same street Fowler Ave towards main street and look to the left and right and ALL the side streets are DONE very nice. Are we just forgetting OTHER TAX PAYERS areas or what !!?

    A very concerned home owner.
