Alternate side parking rules go into effect Tuesday

The City of Madison will start enforcing alternate side parking rules Tuesday at 1 a.m., and the rules will stay in effect through March 17, 2017.

The alternate side parking rules mean that Madison residents must park their cars on the odd-numbered side of the street between 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. on odd dates, and park on the even-numbered side of the street on even date mornings, according to a city press release.

The downtown area, including most areas on and around campus, fall into the “Snow Emergency Zone.” In that area, the rules only go into effect during a declared snow emergency. The rules are in effect regardless of weather conditions for other parts of the city, seven days a week.

The “Snow Emergency Zone” extends from Park Street to Thornton Avenue and the Yahara River, and between Lake Mendota and Lake Monona.

Violating the alternate side parking ordinance can be punishable with a $20 fine, which increases to $60 during a declared snow emergency.
