SNOW EMERGENCY: Alternate-side parking in city of La Crosse begins 6 a.m. Tuesday



Alternate-side parking in the city of La Crosse begins at 6 a.m. Tuesday and lasts for 48 hours, after the street department declared a snow emergency Monday, in preparation for the upcoming snowfall.

From the city’s parking page:

Emergency alternate side parking. Whenever emergency alternate side parking is declared, alternate side parking regulations shall immediately be in effect on all streets in the City of La Crosse. Such regulations shall apply as follows:

  • (1) On odd-numbered days, vehicles shall only be parked, stopped or left standing on that side of the street having odd-numbered addresses.
  • (2) On even-numbered days, vehicles shall only be parked, stopped or left standing on that side of the street having even-numbered addresses.
  • (3) The provisions of this section shall not supersede more restrictive parking regulations such as no parking zones, etc. in effect in the City including without limitation.
  • (4) It shall be considered prima facia evidence that upon six hours after public notification  of the start of alternate side parking, all sections of this ordinance are fully enforceable.  Ignorance is not considered a valid defense for a violation. 
  • (5) Exemptions. Vehicles are exempt from alternate side parking under snow emergencies declarations where parking is normally permitted only on one side of the street and in the downtown business district.
  • (6) The provisions of this section shall only be in effect from 12:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.

The termination of the snow emergency may be extended or cancelled as needed. Please prepare for Alternate Side Parking.
