Madison Declares Snow Emergency

January 22, 2019 10:55 AM

The City of Madison has declared a snow emergency. This means alternate side parking restrictions will be in effect tonight for the Snow Emergency Zone as well as the rest of the City of Madison.  The snow emergency will remain in effect until at least 7 a.m. on January 24.

Depending on road conditions, the snow emergency may be extended beyond January 24.

During the overnight hours this evening, Streets Division crews will continue maintaining the salt routes and also begin plowing the Snow Emergency Zone. 

Individuals who park their vehicle in the Snow Emergency Zone overnight must abide by alternate side parking rules. Those who do not follow the alternate side parking rules may be ticketed and towed.

All Madison residents are encouraged to choose off-street parking options for their vehicles and trailers for the evenings of January 22 through January 24. Fewer obstacles in the road means plowing operations will be safer, faster, and more complete.  

The Streets Division crews along with heavy equipment contractors will begin plowing all city streets during the morning of Wednesday, January 23 when the storm is predicted to end.

All Madison streets should have their initial plowing 14 to 16 hours after the citywide plowing begins on Wednesday morning. 

Parking on the Street Tonight (Tuesday 1/22/19 into early morning of Wednesday 1/23/19)
All residents who must park on the street tonight (the evening of January 22 into early morning of January 23) need to have their vehicles on the ODD house numbered side of the street between the hours of 1am and 7am.  Violations of the alternate side parking rules are punishable by a fine of $60 throughout the entire City of Madison.  Violators could also be towed.

Parking on the Street Tomorrow Night (Wednesday 1/23/19 into the early morning of Thursday 1/24/19)
Vehicles parked on the tomorrow night (the evening of Wednesday January 23 into early morning of Thursday January 24) should have their vehicles on the EVEN house-numbered side of the street between the hours of 1am and 7am.  Violations of the alternate side parking rules are punishable by a fine of $60 throughout the entire City of Madison.  Violators could also be towed.

Other Parking Information
Residents are reminded that all daytime parking restrictions will be enforced.  That includes restrictions that ban parking on selected blocks in the downtown area and on the near east and near west sides.  Parkers should pay attention to all parking signs.

Parking will be available in the cashiered sections of city-owned ramps in the downtown area. During a declared snow emergency you can park for no charge at the City ramps from 9 p.m. until 7 a.m. If you enter before 9 p.m. or leave after 7 a.m. you are liable for any parking charges before 9 p.m. and from 7 a.m. until the time you leave.

When parking in the ramps overnight, do not park on the top level so this area can be plowed. Be aware that vehicles stored in city ramps longer than 48 hours are subject to being ticketed and towed. Meters in lots and ramps are enforced 24 hours per day, 7 days a week.  Parking is also available at the Brittingham Park Shelter parking lot off of W. Washington Ave.

Why You Should Follow Alternate Side Parking
Following alternate side parking keeps the roads open, wide, and safe for all roadway users – cars, bicycles, emergency vehicles, refuse/recycling collection, and so on. 

During tonight's portion of the snow emergency, when you park on the ODD side of the street as you should, that leaves an open lane of travel on the EVEN side for the plows to push the snow all the way back to the curb. 

And tomorrow night, for the second half of the snow emergency, parking on the EVEN side means plows can get to all the snow on the ODD side that they could not the night before since of all the parked cars were there.

Madison residents can get additional snow emergency information at www.cityofmadison.com/winter and addition winter parking information by calling 608-261-9111.
