Alder Carter’s Updates
Snow Emergency and Snow Plow Update
A snow emergency remains in effect for the entire City of Madison until at least 7 a.m. Tuesday, January 29.
Alternate side parking restrictions are in effect again tonight for the entire city of Madison, including the Snow
The Streets Division asks that people choose off-street parking options for their vehicles again this evening, especially those within the Snow Emergency Zone. If an off-street parking option is not available, you must abide by alternate side parking rules.
Streets Division crews will be working throughout the night to plow areas that had been blocked by parked cars during the daytime plowing operations.
Streets Division staff will assess road conditions on Tuesday, January 29 to determine if the snow emergency will be extended to a third evening.
Parking on the Street Tonight (Monday, January 28 into the early morning of Tuesday, January 29)
Vehicles parked on the street tonight (the evening on January 28 into the early morning of January 29) should be on the ODD house-numbered side of the street between the hours of 1 a.m. and 7 a.m.
Violations of the alternate side parking rules are punishable by a fine of $60 throughout the entire City of Madison and violators may be towed. If a vehicle is towed, an additional towing fee will be added to the parking ticket.
Additional information about winter plowing and parking can be found on the city of Madison winter website, www.cityofmadison.com/winter. Parking information can also be heard by calling the winter parking hotline at 608-261-9111.
Snow Plow Update
A snow emergency remains in effect for Madison. And citywide plowing operations in Madison will continue through the afternoon. Once the initial plowing operations are complete, the Streets Division will send plow trucks to maintain the main routes through the evening rush hour.
Since temperatures remain below the salting threshold, the 32 plow trucks assigned to the main routes will only deploy sand as needed.
Roadways users should expect all roads to remain slippery and snow-covered through the evening and overnight hours. Remain alert, slow, and patient on the roads. Plan for additional travel time to arrive at your destinations safely. In general, continue to make good winter commuting choices.
The frigid temperatures will prevent the Streets Division from using salt for a number of days, so expect snow-covered and slick conditions to continue until warmer temperatures return by the week's end.
Tonight, following the crew attending to the roads through evening rush hour, a fresh deployment of operators will come in at midnight to perform a variety of plowing duties. The midnight shift will work on spreading sand on neighborhood streets while also plowing back areas that were blocked by parked cars during the day.
Overnight crews will also plow within the Snow Emergency Zone for the second night of required alternate side parking in these areas of Madison. A snow emergency remains in effect for tonight. Everyone in Madison, including those within the Snow Emergency Zone, must abide by alternate side parking. Violators of the alternate side parking rules may be ticketed and towed.
Streets Division snow plowing operations related to this storm will linger through the week as clean-up work continues. Future updates about plowing operations will be shared as conditions require.

Let's check on our neighbors!
Once again I am asking that each of us check on our neighbors; especially your senior/elderly neighbors. If a neighbor is shoveling their drive way or side walk take time to look out your window periodically to see if they are alright. This is the third major snow event in nine days, so don't take any unnecessary risk.
First and Foremost Stay Safe!
There is hope for better weather - Spring is 51 days, 01 hour, 20 minutes and 44 seconds away
