The City of Madison has canceled the snow emergency for this evening, February 19, 2020 into the early morning hours of February 20, 2020.

Some areas within the Snow Emergency Zone still need to be plowed back to the curb.

These areas also have daytime posted parking restrictions.

Instead of continuing the snow emergency an extra night, the Streets Division will have plows in these areas during the posted parking restricted times to push the snow back to the curb for the streets to be wide and safe.

All commuters and residents who park in areas with posted parking restrictions are encouraged to follow those rules so snow plowing can take place during those posted times.
