The cities of Auburn and Lewiston have declared a parking ban beginning Wednesday evening.

In Auburn, the ban will begin at 7 p.m. Wednesday to continue until 6 a.m. Thursday.

Lewiston’s parking ban will begin an hour earlier at 6 p.m. Wednesday and also end at 6 a.m. Thursday.

Motorists are advised to remove all vehicles from the streets so crews have unobstructed access to all areas for snow plowing and ice control activities. Vehicles in violation of this ban will be towed at the owners’ expense.
