NOW: Overnight snow clearing operation requiring alternate side parking in effect for Milwaukee


MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works has called for an overnight snow clearing operation for the entire city for Monday, January 28 and Tuesday, January 29.

This will help ensure that DPW crews can access as much of the street pavement as possible to clear ice and snow.

All residents who park overnight on a Milwaukee street must move their vehicles to the EVEN numbered side of the street by 11 p.m. on Monday evening, Jan. 28 through 6 a.m. on Tuesday morning. Residents must then move their vehicles again on Tuesday, Jan. 29 by 11 p.m. to the ODD numbered side of the street through Wednesday morning, Jan. 30.

City residents are reminded that the posted street sign takes precedence in all areas of the city. Residents can also check for parking restrictions by clicking here.

Parked vehicles should not impede the flow of traffic in the travel lane. This includes both the streetcar route and other city roadways. If a vehicle cannot be properly parked flush to the curb and out of the flow of traffic, whether due to snow or otherwise, then we discourage individuals from parking in that particular spot and reserve the right to ticket and tow.

Designated Milwaukee Public Schools lots will be available for off-street parking beginning Monday, January 28 at 7 p.m. This parking option is designed to assist residents who live in congested parking areas to find overnight parking from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. All vehicles must be moved from MPS lots by 7 a.m. the following morning or they may be subject to ticketing and towing.

Residents are encouraged to sign up to receive a Winter Parking Alert via a text message and/or email message
which serve to notify them that a DPW operation has been called, and that vehicles must be moved accordingly.
