In spring, the City begins street sweeping which can take up to seven weeks, weather permitting.

Every spring, all City streets, sidewalks, multi-use trails and boulevards are cleared of sand and debris that have accumulated over the winter. 

2021 Street Sweeping

Check this map during street sweeping to see which roads have been swept. Major road closures will be posted on the City's Twitter account and at #yegtraffic.

To avoid traffic impacts, major roads are swept at night; residential roads and alleyways are cleaned during the day.

Please do not park on the street when street sweepers are scheduled to be in your area.

Parks crews will first sweep boulevards and push debris onto major roads, then road crews will sweep debris from the major roads at night. 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. 

The City has measures in place to minimize dust, but street sweepers can still create dusty conditions that reduce visibility. If you see dust, slow down and drive for conditions. We recommend closing windows and walking on alternative sidewalks. Always give our equipment plenty of space - in front, behind and on both sides.

When crews are scheduled to be in your residential area, please move your vehicles off the street so they can do a thorough job. Sweeping schedules will be posted on neighbourhood signs and on this page. 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.
