Local areas declare snow emergencies for Sunday

Madison City Plow


The City of Madison declared a snow emergency for Sunday evening, ahead of another round of snow.

Crews are already plowing roads across the city, and officials asked residents to choose off-street parking options if possible. Alternate side parking rules are in effect for Sunday night.

Officials also asked that anybody whose trash and recycling collection day is Monday not place their carts in the street.

The city has about 1.800 miles of lanes that need to be cleared, and the process could take 12 to 14 hours.

The low temperatures also mean that the city’s salt treatment is ineffective. Drivers should expect snow-covered and slippery roads.


The City of Janesville also declared a winter weather emergency beginning at 4 a.m. Sunday.

Officials said all parked vehicles must be removed from city streets until snow and ice control operations are complete, which will be from at least 4 a.m. until 4 p.m. Sunday.

City crews said they will do a city-wide plowing following the snowfall.

A news release said the emergency may be rescinded for Monday, but updates will come on the city’s website.
