City Crews Set For Spring Cleaning Our Roads

 

Brandon, MB – City of Brandon’s Streets and Roads Section has started the annual spring street sweeping program to clean streets and boulevards of winter debris.

 

Crews have started sweeping the Priority 1A Routes. Street sweeping in subsequent residential zones will be scheduled in the coming days, with crews considering the established sanitation collection schedule.

 

Residents are encouraged to check the online street sweeping map to see when street sweepers are scheduled to be in their area. Wherever possible, temporary “No Parking” signage will be put in place 24 hours ahead of scheduled street sweeping occurring. As per City of Brandon Traffic By-law No. 5463 (Part 3, Section 37), vehicles parked in these signed areas may be subject to a ticket and/or tow.

 

As the City of Brandon’s residential spring street sweeping program includes the process of sweeping winter sanding debris off boulevards and City right-of-way’s (which may include fronts of lawns if there is no boulevard), residents can minimize the potential for any property damage by clearly flagging any underground sprinkler systems that may be present.

 

More information about the City of Brandon’s Spring Street Cleanup Program is available by calling the Streets and Roads Section at 204-729-2290.
