The extended ban, which went into effect Dec. 14 as a Colorado low battered the city with snow, was lifted Monday morning.

The extended bans mean city crews start cleaning two hours earlier than usual and vehicles parked overnight on snow routes or winter routes could be ticketed.

In addition to a $100 ticket, vehicles violating the extended ban may also be towed.
