BALTIMORE (AP) - Baltimore officials say the ban on parking along snow emergency routes has been lifted.

The Baltimore City Department of Transportation says the ban was lifted at noon Saturday. Phase II of the city’s snow emergency plan has now ended a week after a record amount of snowfall.

DOT says Mayor Rawlings-Blake also ended her declaration of a local state of emergency.

The city said that 99 percent of all city streets were passable for motorists, as of Friday evening.

The department says this weekend’s snow removal efforts will focus on neighborhoods and along major gateways to clear parking and travel lanes as the city prepares for schools to reopen Monday.

DOT says over 240 million pounds of snow has been hauled from city streets through the week.
