MILWAUKEE — The City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works (DPW) has wrapped up its overnight snow removal operation — and also lifted the four-inch rule.

Officials say city residents are reminded that the posted street sign takes precedence in all areas of the city. You’re encouraged to 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.
