A DPW snow removal operation has been called for 48-Hour Exception streets beginning Friday at 11:00 p.m.

In addition, the 4-inch rule will be in effect beginning Friday at 11:00 p.m.

DPW has 120 salt trucks addressing Milwaukee’s main streets for the Friday evening commute.

In a detailed release issued Friday Sandy Rush Walton alerted the public to specific plans, in hopes drivers will assist in terms of not hindering the execution of snow removal.

The overnight snow removal operation for 48-Hour Parking Exception streets that will last for three (3) nights – Friday, December 16,
Saturday, December 17, and Sunday, December 18, 2016.

DPW says this will help ensure that crews can access as much of the street pavement as possible to remove ice and snow effectively, efficiently, and most
importantly, safely.

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, 2016, 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.

"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." read the statement.

Residents can call (414) 286-CITY (-2489) for more information.

Once the 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
