The City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works (DPW) has concluded its Snow Emergency as of January 31, 2023. DPW is continuing its snow and ice cleanup operations focusing on specific locations in the street, curb cuts and sidewalks that are of City responsibility. The Snow Emergency declaration requiring a change to parking regulations is no longer necessary.

Residents must still follow winter parking rules that include:

  • There is no parking allowed on arterials (main streets) from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m.
  • Posted regulations stating “No Parking Dec. 1 to March 1.”
