Warmer weather is just around the corner, and that means it’s time to clean the roads of sand and debris. The City of Edmonton will start street sweeping near the end of April, weather permitting, and is reminding residents of the process.
“Spring season came late this year, creating some unique challenges. Our crews have a concrete work plan and are confident it will be a success,” said Andrew Grant, General Supervisor, Infrastructure Field Operations.
The City’s sweeping process is designed to be as efficient and non-disruptive as possible. Parks crews will first sweep boulevards and push debris onto major roads, then road crews will sweep debris from the major roads. Road crews will sweep up debris on residential roads during the day.
Motorists can expect to see peace officers, flashing lights and blocked lanes on high-volume and high-speed roads. Please give crews room to work for both their safety and yours.
Please move vehicles off the street to allow crews to do a thorough job. Sweeping schedules will be posted on neighbourhood signs and on
. Schedules will be updated regularly throughout the sweeping process. Please note that each neighbourhood has a designated week for residential sweeping, but if crews are ahead of schedule, sweeping will start in the next neighbourhood early.
