Madison declares snow emergency

From the City of Madison Streets Dept: 

The City of Madison has declared a snow emergency. Alternate side parking restrictions will be in effect in the downtown/isthmus snow emergency zone as well as the rest of the City of Madison. There will be no large item collection today to help facilitate plowing operations. Refuse and recycling collection, however, will go on as scheduled.

The snow emergency will remain in effect until 7 a.m. on Sunday, February 11.

The Streets Division crews along with heavy equipment contractors will begin plowing all city streets at 7am on Friday, February 9.  All Madison streets should have their initial plowing 12 to 14 hours after the citywide operation commences. The combined plow force of the Streets Division and heavy equipment contractors will be approximately 150 pieces of equipment.  

The Streets Division requests that all Madison residents remove vehicles and trailers from the street if possible. Fewer obstacles in the road means crews the plowing operations will be safer, faster, and more complete.  If residents must park on the street, it is very important to follow alternate side parking rules tonight, and all other daytime parking rules.

Alternate side parking restrictions are enforced from 1 a.m. to 7 a.m. Vehicles violating alternate side parking rules may be ticketed and towed.   

Refuse, Recycling on Schedule; No Large Items February 9

The Streets Division will have crews assigned to collect the tan refuse and green recycling carts. However, the snow on residential streets will likely slow collection crews.  There will be no large item collection crews on duty today. Those Streets Division employees are needed to perform plowing operations. The Streets Division crews will assign additional large item collection crews, weather permitting, on Monday, February 12 to begin to collect from the areas that were scheduled to have large items picked today. The Streets Division regrets the delay.

All residents who must park on the street tonight (the evening of February 9 into early morning of February 10) need to have their vehicles on the EVEN house numbered side of the street between the hours of 1am and 7am.  Violations of the alternate side parking rules are punishable by a fine of $60 throughout the entire City of Madison. Violators could also be towed.

Parking on the Street Tomorrow Night (Saturday 2/10/18 into the early morning of Sunday 2/11/18)

Other Parking Information

Residents are reminded that all daytime parking restrictions will be enforced.  That includes restrictions that ban parking on selected blocks in the Downtown/Isthmus area and on the near east and near west sides.  Parkers should pay attention to all parking signs since violations may lead to tickets and towing.

Parking is available in the cashiered sections of city-owned ramps in the downtown area. During a declared snow emergency, you can park for no charge at the City ramps from 9 p.m. until 7 a.m. If you enter before 9 p.m. or leave after 7 a.m. you are liable for any parking charges before 9 p.m. and from 7 a.m. until the time you leave.

When parking in the ramps overnight, do not park on the top level so this area can be plowed. Be aware that vehicles stored in city ramps longer than 48 hours are subject to being ticketed and towed. Meters in lots and ramps are enforced 24 hours per day, 7 days a week.  Parking is also available at the Brittingham Park Shelter parking lot off of W. Washington Ave.
