Snow Action Day Protocol

When significant snowy weather is expected, campus officials will call a Snow Action Day. The purpose is to alert the campus community and enable the crews --it is not an indication that school is canceled, just a call to action! Snow Action Days will be announced on the UW homepage.

During a Snow Action Day…
- People will be encouraged to leave cars at home
- Moped and bicycle travel discouraged
- Winter parking rules in affect
- Top level of parking ramps closed

Winter Parking Rules
- These rules apply from 2AM until 6AM every day from November 15 through March 15.
- No parking on Observatory Drive or Linden Drive. This includes lot 26 and 40.
- There is restricted parking in lots 16, 34, 40, 50, 51 and 137. Please park in designated rows (marked by the "Shovelin' Bucky" signs).
- Top levels of ramps may be blocked off to better facilitate snow removal.
- Go to link for a map of areas affected by winter parking rules.

Lastly, crews will spray a solution on the south walk of Bascom Hill and on the footbridge over Park St. before a snow fall to melt falling snow and prevent ice formation
