Weather permitting, an annual rite of spring in Minneapolis is scheduled to begin today, Tuesday, April 14. That’s when Public Works crews will start a comprehensive sweeping of city streets to clean up the dirt and grime the melting ice and snow leaves behind. Drivers should watch for temporary “No Parking” signs along these streets to avoid a ticket and tow.
Today through May 8, sweepers will take care of nearly 1,000 miles of city streets. To make sure the crews can do the best job possible, temporary “No Parking” signs will be posted at least 24 hours in advance to make sure streets are clear of parked vehicles. Drivers need to follow street sweep parking rules or they may have their cars ticketed and towed to the Minneapolis Impound Lot.
Even though the city-wide comprehensive street sweeping program has not yet begun, crews began sweeping parkways and some commercial corridors last month, and alley sweeping stared on April 6. Crews are also sweeping select downtown streets at night, and temporary parking restrictions may be posted between midnight and 5 a.m.
- “No Parking” signs – Crews will post “No Parking” signs at least 24 hours before sweeping any streets. Parking will be banned from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on the day a street is swept. The “No Parking” signs will be removed as soon as possible after a street has been completely swept to allow people to resume parking. Drivers should not park along these streets until these temporary “No Parking” signs are removed.
- Phone calls to residents – In addition to the “No Parking” signs that will be posted the day before sweepers come through, the City will make about 3,500 automated phone calls each evening to let residents know their street will be swept the next day.
- Interactive Web tool – There’s a tool on the City’s Web site to find out when the sweeping crews are coming through their neighborhoods. Residents can go to www.minneapolismn.gov/publicworks/streetsweeping and click on “street sweeping schedule lookup,” to find out which week a street is scheduled to be swept. The weekend before that week, they can revisit the Web site to find out which day of the week the street is scheduled to be swept.
