AKRON, Ohio — Akron officials said they have completed plowing all "first, second and third" priority streets in the city.

The city said they completed planning all roads 48 hours after the snow stopped.

According to officials, this was the largest snowfall Akron's had in the last 25 years.

The city asks anyone who is parked on the road to move their car, if possible, to allow plows through.

There are still 52 plows and salt trucks cleaning up intersections where cars were previously parked.

The parking ban is still in place.
