PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- After Portland's record snowfall over the weekend, the city is still working overtime to clean up the streets - which means parking bans and some annoyed drivers.

It's been slow going for public works crews as they deal with this massive amount of snowfall. They continue to work 16 hour shifts, doing most of the snow removal overnight.

While there are technically no more yellow bans or parking bans, the city is still focusing on cleaning individual streets. Their priority right now is cleaning up the East and West End.

Drivers will see postings on certain streets that will be taken care of overnight. Those postings are something city spokesperson Nicole Clegg says people will likely see in different sections of the city for at least a few more days.

The main goal is to make sure emergency vehicles and school buses can get around, Clegg says if you think your street is too narrow to call the city - maybe they missed it.
