Every spring, all City streets are cleared of sand and debris that have accumulated over the winter. Street sweeping began in early April and is scheduled to wrap up by June 1, weather permitting.
Please do not park on the street when street sweepers are scheduled to be in your area.
The City has measures in place to minimize dust, but street sweepers can still create dusty conditions that reduce visibility. If you see dust, slow down and drive for conditions. Always give our equipment plenty of space - in front, behind and on both sides.
