Winter parking rules in effect until March 2nd in Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE -- Winter parking regulations for the city of Milwaukee expire on Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016.

Residents must still follow winter parking rules overnight Tuesday, March 1st into Wednesday morning, March 2nd.

With measurable snow forecasted for February 29th/March 1st, these rules will allow the Department of Public Works (DPW) to clear the streets effectively, efficiently, and most importantly -- safely.
