City of Milwaukee Concludes Overnight Snow Removal Operations

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

The operation had been called to help ensure that DPW crews could access as much of the street pavement as possible to remove snow that fell on December 16- 18, 2016.

In addition, the 4-inch rule has also been lifted.

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, residents should also check for parking restrictions at

Residents can also call (414) 286-CITY (-2489).

Residents are encouraged to sign up to receive a Snow Mobile Winter Text Alert message and/or an E-Notify 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 or call (414) 286-CITY for assistance.
