PARK ON THE EVEN SIDE OF THE STREET TONIGHT
A snow emergency remains in effect for the entire City of Madison until 7:00 a.m. Tuesday, December 6. Residents are asked to keep their vehicles off the street tonight if possible. If you must park on the street this evening you should park on the EVEN house numbered side of the street between the hours of 1:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. Details on winter parking restrictions are available at cityofmadison.com/winter. Violations of the alternate side parking restrictions during a snow emergency are punishable by a $60 fine.
Crews will be working throughout the night to plow back areas that had been blocked by parked cars during the initial plowing operation. With colder temperatures coming, snow that cannot be plowed from the street due to parked vehicles may freeze solid and impede traffic and parking all winter long.
Parking is available in the cashiered sections of City-owned parking garages in the downtown area. During a declared Snow Emergency you can park for no charge at the City garages from 9:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m. If you enter before 9:00 p.m. or leave after 7:00 a.m. you are liable for any parking charges before 9:00 p.m. and from 7:00 a.m. until the time you leave.
When parking in the garages overnight, do not park on the top level so this area can be plowed. Be aware that vehicles stored in City garages longer than 48 hours are subject to being ticketed and towed. Meters in lots and garages are enforced 24 hours per day, 7 days a week.
Free parking is also available at the Brittingham Park Shelter parking lot off of West Washington Avenue.
Residents can sign up to receive text and/or email alerts whenever a snow emergency is declared at the city's web site cityofmadison.com/winter. You will also get storm and plowing updates at the site or by calling (608) 261-9111.
