Alternate-side parking ended last Friday in La Crosse, but won’t end until April 1 for area suburbs.

The La Crosse Streets Department can declare a snow emergency, which requires all-day alternate-side parking for 48 hours, should snow fall into the spring. A predicted snowfall of 3 inches automatically triggers the snow emergency after the city changed the ordinance last year to better handle unseasonable snowstorms like the ones La Crosse saw last April.

Alternate-side parking continues through April 1 in Onalaska and police will be writing tickets, according to Onalaska police chief Troy Miller.

Holmen, West Salem and Bangor also have ordinances extending the alternate-side parking restrictions through April 1.
