Boston’s Parking Ban Will Be Lifted at 6 p.m. Tuesday Night

The city announced on Tuesday afternoon that due to recent strides made in snow removal from city streets, Boston’s snow emergency parking ban would be lifted at 6 p.m. Tuesday night. “Our snow removal teams did great work throughout the night last night,” Mayor Menino said. “Our crews will be out there all day and again tonight as we continue to widen roads, make our schools safe for students, and respond to residents’ concerns about residential areas.” Those who parked their cars in garages during the snow emergency have until 8 p.m. to move them before reduced rates expire.  The city also announced certain streets will continue to be specified as “No Parking” while crews continue to remove snow. The mayor also announced on Tuesday that Boston Public Schools would reopen on Wednesday.   Snow Removal ProgressThrough the city’s concentrated snow removal efforts on Monday night, the mayor’s office reported that 1,350 truck loads of snow were removed from roadways, and 70 streets were reached for snow removal during the overnight shift. Inspectional Services issued 350 citations between midnight and 7 a.m. for snow-related violations. The city is currently utilizing several snow farms, including at Marine Industrial Park, Reservation Road in Hyde Park and Columbus Avenue, next to 1542 Columbus. If you have snow conditions or violations to report, you can reach the mayor’s office at 617-635-4500.  South End Patch
