Crews are preparing to sweep streets across Minneapolis before winter, keeping leaves and debris out of the storm drains and ending up in our lakes and rivers as much as possible.
Minneapolis Public Works will begin street sweeping on Tuesday, October 22.
Temporary “No Parking” signs will be posted at least 24 hours in advance so streets will be clear of cars when they’re swept. Anyone who parks on the street will need to follow posted parking rules or their cars may be ticketed and towed.
Ways to stay informed of the parking rules:
- “No Parking” signs – City 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. However, the “No Parking” signs will be removed as soon as possible after a street has been completely swept to allow people to resume parking after the signs are removed.
- Social media – The City will use Facebook and Twitter to post periodic street sweeping updates and information.
- Interactive web feature – You can use the City’s website to find out when the sweepers are coming through your neighborhood. Reference the website once we get closer to the start date. The fall street sweep takes four weeks, and visitors to the website will be able to find out which week their street is scheduled to be swept. Then, on the weekend before each of the four weeks, the schedule for the upcoming week will be broken down to show which day of the week streets are scheduled to be swept.
