PARKING RULES: City of Milwaukee, March 13th and 14th

Milwaukee -

The City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works snow preparedness plans for March 13 and 14 2017:

The City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works (DPW) has called for an overnight snow removal operation for 48-Hour Parking Exception streets that will last for two nights – Monday, March 13 and Tuesday, March 14, 2017.

This will help ensure that DPW 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 odd numbered side of the street by 11:00 p.m. on Monday, March 13, 2017.

Residents must then move their vehicles again on Tuesday, March 14 by 11:00 p.m. to the even numbered side of the street.

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

As not all winter parking rules are posted, residents should also check for parking restrictions at

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

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.

Please remind your audience that residents SHOULD NOT shovel, snow blow, or plow snow back into the streets!

Additional tips:

  • If you don’t have to go out, please stay off City streets tonight so DPW crews can clear the streets as efficiently, effectively, and safely as possible
  • If you do go out, please SLOW DOWN and give our plow drivers extra room to do their work

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