MADISON, Wis. — Drivers heading to downtown Madison may need to plan ahead if planning on parking in city parking garages and lots this weekend.

Parking Division officials said credit card payment machines for parking spaces around the city will like experience outages starting at 7 a.m. Saturday due to network maintenance. The outage will affect nearly all city-owned parking garages and lots.

Officials said service is expected to resume later Saturday morning, but payment will still be required when credit and debit processing abilities are down. That means drivers will need to pay with cash until service is restored.

Credit and debit payments will still work properly on the city’s parking meters and multi-space pay stations in lots. The Wilson Street Garage and Brayton Lot will not be affected at all.

Staff will be present at all facilities Saturday morning to help any patrons who need it.
