Twice a year, Public Works crews sweep more than 1,100 miles of streets from curb to curb. In the spring, crews sweep nearly 400 miles of alleys. We also do routine sweeping at other times, which does not impact parking. Street sweeping helps keep our neighborhoods clean and livable, and protects our waterways.
See when your street is scheduled
- City crews will post signs at least 24 hours before sweeping a street.
- There is no parking from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., or until the signs are removed, the day we sweep the street.
- Vehicles parked while the signs are in place may be ticketed and towed.
You can sign up for phone alerts about street sweeping, snow emergencies and other events you may want to know about.
Make sure to scroll down to "Subscribe to Phone Notifications from the City." Note that email alerts are not available for street sweeping.
If you do not subscribe to alerts but have a listed phone number, you may still receive a short, prerecorded message the evening before your block will be swept. Calls are not made after 9 p.m. This is a courtesy call, but we cannot guarantee that you will receive a call. To be sure you're on the list to get alerts, actively subscribe as described above.
