The City of Evanston has declared a snow route parking ban for tonight.

The ban means cars must not be parked on major routes between 11 p.m. tonight and 6 a.m.Saturday morning.

Emergency sirens will be sounded at 8:15 p.m. as a reminder that the ban is in effect.

Snow routes are posted with red-white-and-blue signs that declare their status, and a map of the snow routes is available here.

Even if plows have been through, snow removal operations may require return visits by city trucks. The fine for violating the Snow Route Parking ban is $50 plus towing and storage charges.
