Alternate side parking wraps up in La Crosse area

Season ceases Friday at midnight

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Alternate side parking wraps up Friday night for many communities in the La Crosse area.

The La Crosse Police Department will not write tickets for alternate side parking violations after midnight.

The Police Department issued more tickets this year for violations, issuing nearly 15,000 tickets compared to last year's 13,000. La Crosse officers say while the policy is not a popular one, it benefits city roads.

"It gets down to being able to maintain and service our roads and keep them as cleaned off as possible, not only of snow but then if the snow does melt, we are able to get out and do some of those maintenance things that the city also needs to accomplish,” said La Crosse Policed Department Sergeant Tom Walsh.

The alternate side parking season also ends at midnight for Shelby, Onalaska, Holmen, West Salem and Campbell.
