The city of Portland has issued a limited, “yellow zone” parking ban for downtown streets Sunday night to allow for snow removal.

The ban is used after major storms to allow public works crews to haul snow, given how narrow many of the streets in the yellow zone are, city spokeswoman Jessica Grondin said in a press release.

Markers that look like parking signs will indicate the streets in the zone, which includes dozens of downtown streets bounded by Cumberland Avenue, Franklin, Commercial and State streets, including Danforth, Spring, Middle, Fore, Gray streets and more. To see a map of the yellow zone, click here.

The parking ban begins at 10 p.m. Sunday and ends at 6 a.m. Monday. Vehicles left on those streets could be towed at the owner’s expense, Grondin said.

The downtown parking ban follows two nights of city-wide parking bans on Friday and Saturday due to the storm that hit Maine on Saturday.
