MILWAUKEE — The City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works called for an overnight snow removal operation Tuesday, Feb. 12 and Wednesday, Feb. 13 after another winter storm dumped several more inches of snow in southeast Wisconsin.

The snow removal operation requires alternate side street parking in Milwaukee.

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 Tuesday evening through 6 a.m. on Wednesday morning. Residents must then move their vehicles again on Wednesday evening by 11 p.m. to the ODD numbered side of the street through Thursday morning at 6 a.m.

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 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).

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 Tuesday 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.

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