MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A snow emergency in the city of Milwaukee will be in effect for a second night Wednesday, Jan. 27.
There is no parking allowed on arterials (main streets) from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. and alternate side parking will be required on side streets from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.
Department of Public Works crews say it's needed to help clear snow off city streets.
They say Tuesday night's snow emergency allowed crews to go curb to curb. More than 100 pieces of equipment were on the roads, but scaled down on main roads after rush hour to focus on other areas.
Crews say there's always a possibility a section was missed or there were cars parked there earlier.
If you see a street that looks like it hasn't been addressed, you can report it at 414-286-CITY (2489).
Garbage and recycling also resumes Jan. 27.
