Road conditions
Multiple plows were seen working throughout the morning in Cleveland. Parked cars on the street are making it tough in some spots to clear the additional snow.

Plows were seen clearing residential streets in Tremont and also in the areas of East 63rd Street and Fleet Avenue.

Parking Bans
The City of Alliance announced it will begin towing vehicles at 11 a.m. due to the parking ban. Residents can park in the street once their street has been plowed.

In Akron, the parking ban is still in effect for all Akron streets. The city said all available trucks are currently working in the third priority streets and will continue to do so until streets are plowed.

Public Transportation

The Greater Cleveland RTA bus and rail service has been fully restored Tuesday. The RTA Light Rail (blue and green lines) and heavy rail (red line) services are fully restored and running some minor delays due to the residual impact of Monday’s snowstorm.
