All Madison streets will be plowed today, December 12, 2020. There is no snow emergency in effect for tonight.

A citywide plowing operation will begin this afternoon at approximately 2:00pm. Citywide plowing takes 12 to 16 hours to complete. This means plowing vehicles will be circling through Madison neighborhoods from this afternoon until the early morning hours of Sunday, December 13, 2020.

All residents are encouraged to choose off-street parking options throughout the day and into tonight to assist with plowing. Be sure to follow all other parking rules and posted restrictions, including alternate side parking rules where applicable.

Following posted parking rules, and choosing off-street parking options, greatly helps snowplowing operations as it creates an open lane of travel for plows to work. Also, it allows crews to plow each street one time without needing to circle back a second or third time over the next few days to push snow from the road in areas that had been blocked by parked cars or other obstructions.
