Snow clearing crews have already cleared most main routes, bus routes and collector streets, and the remaining cleanup has started downtown and is expanding to bridges, overpasses and underpasses.
A declared snow route parking ban took effect early Monday morning on streets designated as snow routes.
Temporary "no parking" signs were put on display, and any vehicle parked in that area would be ticketed $100 and may be towed.
The snow route parking ban will be in effect again from midnight until 7 a.m. on Tuesday, according to the city.
Meanwhile, the residential parking ban will begin Tuesday at 7 a.m. and continue until Thursday at 7 p.m.
The residential ban splits the city into zones, with streets in each zone being plowed in a 12-hour period. To find out what zone you're in, you can go to the city's website or call 311.
Vehicles parked in residential snow route areas will be ticketed $150 and may be towed to a nearby street.
About 8,900 warnings, with information about the new snow zone system, were issued to motorists following the last snowstorm in November, according to the city.
"We only issued warning notifications rather than the full-fledged parking tickets. We did that as an introduction to the new system, to get everybody used to the Know Your Zone system," Ken Boyd, the city's manager of streets maintenance, said Monday.
"The tickets will be real this time."
Residents who park their vehicles on the street are urged to find another place to park, like a driveway or parking lot, when their snow zones are slated for clearing.
People can also park on nearby streets that are not currently scheduled for plowing, according to the city.
