Boston's parking ban on major roads throughout the city will remain in effect, the mayor announced on Saturday afternoon.
“We’re halfway there,” Mayor Menino said. “Our crews have been out there, non-stop, and our residents have listened to the early warnings to stay home and stay off the roads. We’re not out of the woods yet. Right now, it’s critical that residents continue to work with us and let the crews have full access to the streets.”
You can see the streets that are banned from parking in the South End neighborhood here.
The city said public works crews are out in full force, but it will take significant time, even after the snow stops this afternoon, to clear every roadway.
The city also said it is vital that residents continue to stay off the roads and let the process run its course.
