With public works crews still working to clear streets after another round of snow Monday morning, the city is imposing a snow route parking ban again for Monday night.

The ban, which prohibits parking on major streets signed as snow routes, will be in effect from 11 p.m. Monday until 6 a.m. Tuesday.

The daytime ban on parking on the even-numbered side of residential streets continues Monday until 6 p.m.

That will switch to a ban on parking on the odd-numbered side on Tuesday, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Those sites include the Maple Avenue garage downtown, ETHS Parking Lot 1A and the following city surface parking lots:
