Street Sweeping Starts This Week, City Develops App To Monitor Sweepers

It’s time to clean those dirty city streets after a long winter and street sweeping for the City of Chicago starts this week. To help monitor the location of area street sweepers, the city has developed an app to show their progress.

Temporary parking restrictions will be posted the day before the work is scheduled to begin on any street to ensure curb-to-curb cleaning. However, some arterial streets have permanently posted signs that specify a once-per-week period when parking is prohibited for street sweeping.

According to the City of Chicago, they will issue $60 street sweeping tickets to every car parked on streets subject to cleaning from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on listed days. Furthermore, all parked cars are also subject to towing and additional fines.

The first streets effected are located within Edgewater section one on April 2. Section one includes the streets with East/West boundaries of Broadway to Clark and North/South boundaries of Elmdale to Granville. On April 4, Edgewater section two will start and effect streets with East/West boundaries of Broadway to Clark and North/South boundaries of Byrn Mawr to Elmdale.
