The city of Akron has lifted the snow emergency parking ban that has been in place since 8 p.m. Sunday in anticipation of the snowstorm that brought more than a foot of snow to the region.

As of Thursday morning, 28 of the city's 52 trucks were continuing clean-up efforts, which include laying salt and removing snow piles in front of businesses and intersections.

All trucks had been deployed for days in preparation for and throughout the storm.

The city said as of Wednesday at noon, all routes had been visited by snowplows were "open and passable" after some residents spent three days stranded in their homes. The remaining crews are continuing to work through all requests submitted online and to the mayor's office 311 call center.
