City Crews Ready for Spring Street Sweeping Program

Spring is just around the corner! That means the City’s street cleaning crews are coming to our neighbourhoods to remove debris and gravel off the roads.

Street sweeping removes the sanding material and debris that has accumulated on our roads and along major sidewalks and boulevards during the winter months. The program, which improves safety and mobility for Calgary motorists, cyclists and pedestrians, kicks off at the beginning of April. But you might see crews out there working hard beforehand, pre-sweeping along major roads and boulevards.

This year, street sweeping will wrap-up in June. In order to make this happen, crews will be sweeping streets on a compressed schedule, working 7 days per week.

Keeping Calgary Clean is a Collaborative Effort

We are asking all Calgarians to help us make the city beautiful and roads safe by removing vehicles and carts from the street when you see road-sweeping signs in your community.
