After 6-Week Delay, Parking Restrictions For Street Sweeping Resume

It was no fooling that on the first of April parking restrictions were supposed to commence to make way for street sweeping. The COVID-19 virus however put a quick halt to the plan on residential streets as Chicagoans were put on stay-at-home orders and workers who operate those big, blue cleaning machines focused on cleaning main arteries.

Unfortunately, those days free of fines for parked vehicles left in the path of the sweepers come to an end tomorrow, May 19 as work resumes on residential streets in Edgewater and Andersonville. Chicago’s Department of Streets and Sanitation will remind people by posting bright orange signs the day before sweeping occurs on affected roads.

The street sweeping will eliminate the debris and litter that has accumulated on neighborhood roads from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. The schedule runs through November of this year.

The City’s Sweeper Tracker tool allows residents to view where the sweepers are located  every day in real time. View the 48th Ward’s 2020 street sweeping schedule online now.
