Overnight Snow Removal Operation Planned for Milwaukee

The City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works has called for an overnight snow removal operation for 48-Hour Parking Exception streets.

According to a release from DPW, that will last for three nights – Friday, December 16, Saturday, December 17, and Sunday, December 18.

All residents that park on a 48-hour exception street must move their vehicles to the even numbered side of the street by 11:00 p.m. on Friday, December 16, then move their vehicles again on Saturday, December 17 by 11:00 p.m. to the odd numbered side of the street.

On Sunday, December 18, residents must move their vehicles back to the even numbered side of the street by 11:00 p.m.

City residents are reminded that the posted street sign takes precedence in all areas of the city.

DPW is asking residents to please read the street signs on the block/in the neighborhood for winter parking instructions BEFORE YOU PARK.

As not all winter parking rules are posted, residents should also check for parking restrictions at milwaukee.gov/services/winterregs. Residents can also call (414) 286-CITY (-2489).

Once these streets have been plowed, DPW will notify residents again that the operation has concluded and overnight parking is once again permitted on both sides of the street, until the next operation is called.

Failure to move a vehicle overnight during a declared DPW operation will result in a $20 citation and the possibility of being towed. Towed vehicles are subject to a $105 reclamation fee plus a $20 per day storage fee.

Remember, you also need a valid overnight parking permit to park on the street.

Residents are encouraged to sign up to receive a Snow Mobile Winter Text Alert message and/or an ENotify email message which serve to alert them that a DPW operation has been called, and that vehicles must be moved accordingly.

To sign up for either or both alerts, go to milwaukee.gov/mpw or call (414) 286-CITY for assistance.
