Snow Emergency 1/11/2020

January 11, 2020 12:54 PM

Madison Declares Snow Emergency

This is the first night of a two-night event

The City of Madison has declared a snow emergency. This means alternate side parking restrictions will be in effect tonight starting at 1:00 a.m. 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 13, 2020.

Again, individuals who park their vehicle in the Snow Emergency Zone overnight must abide by alternate side parking rules during the declared emergency. 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 evening of January 11 through January 13. Fewer obstacles in the road means plowing operations will be safer, faster, and more complete.  

 

Parking on the Street Tonight (Saturday 1/11/20 into early morning of Sunday 1/12/20)

All residents who must park on the street tonight (the evening of January 11 into early morning of January 12) need to 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.

 

Parking on the Street Tomorrow Night (Sunday 1/12/20 into the early morning of Monday 1/13/20)

Vehicles parked on the tomorrow night (the evening of Sunday, January 12 into early morning of Monday, January 13) should 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.

 

Other Parking Information

Residents are reminded that all daytime and signed 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. 

 

Plowing Operations Information

Citywide plowing operations are due to start around midnight when the snowstorm is at or near its end. Plowing operations take between 12 and 16 hours.

For additional plowing operations information, see check the Plow Update on the winter website, www.cityofmadison.com/winter.
