After snowfalls of three or more inches occur, the City Manager
has the authority to issue a snow restricted parking declaration.
After the snow route policy is declared, the program requires "odd/even" parking along the designated snow routes
. Once in effect, parking is prohibited on the "even numbered" side of the streets on the even days of the month, and on the "odd numbered" side of the streets on the odd days of the month for those streets on the snow route. The parking restrictions are in effect from noon to 5:00 p.m. or 1:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. depending upon the street.
Enforcement of the snow route parking policy will be announced at least six hours in advance through news media, including CityChannel Dubuque and the City of Dubuque website. In addition, you may register to receive an email or text notification through the Notify Me module
on this website or sign up for the City's CodeRED system
, which is also utilized to alert citizens of a snow route policy activation by phone.
