Alternate Side Parking Starts November 15
Alternate Side Parking Rules Begin November 15 at 1am
The City of Madison's alternate side parking restrictions begin at 1 a.m. on Wednesday, November 15th.
Alternate side parking is in effect from November 15 to March 15 for the entire City of Madison, except for those in the Snow Emergency Zone. Alternate side parking rules are enforced from 1am to 7am seven days a week regardless of weather conditions.
Alternate Side Parking Rules
Vehicles parked on the street should be parked on the odd house numbered side of the street between the hours of 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. on odd numbered dates.
Vehicles should be parked on the even house numbered side of the street between the hours of 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. on even numbered dates.
Violations of the alternate side parking ordinance are punishable by fines of $20. The fine increases to $60 during a declared Snow Emergency.
Be sure to continue following all other parking restrictions while also following alternate side parking rules.
Following alternate side parking rules helps plowing operations a great deal by creating an open lane of travel for the Streets Division's equipment. Residents are encouraged to plan ahead when parking their vehicle on the street for the evening to be sure they are in compliance with the alternate side rules. The Streets Division also recommends that residents remove seldom used vehicles, boats, and other trailers from the streets to avoid fines and help with plowing operations.
More detailed information regarding winter parking rules is available on the City's winter web site, www.cityofmadison.com/winter. Winter parking updates can also be obtained by calling the winter parking hotline at 608-261-9111.
On the city's winter website, besides signing up to receive text and/or email alerts regarding declared snow emergencies, residents can also sign up to receive Snow Plow Update e-mails that will detail the Streets Division's operations in response to snow events. Other useful winter information, such as locations for free sand to use on sidewalks, or tips on how to bicycle in the winter, and more are all available at www.cityofmadison.com/winter.
