Street Sweeping Underway in Greater Sudbury
Apr 13, 2017
The City’s street sweeping program is currently underway and will run through to early-June.
City crews have started sweeping sidewalks, boulevards, medians and some streets throughout the City. Currently, business centres and the Sudbury Rocks Marathon route are areas of high priority. Areas not listed under the Contractor's routes are swept by City crews, including the downtown core.
The City’s street sweeping contract is into its 1st year with Jara Sweeping. This Contractor is outfitted with a fleet of specialized street sweeping equipment needed to complete operations in a timely and efficient manner.
The Contractor is scheduled to begin operations the week of April 18, weather permitting. The tentative schedule is as follows:
April 18 to April 26 – Sudbury Rocks marathon route, Kingsway, and part of the Flour Mill, downtown and the area around the former Hospital site
April 26 to May 5 - New Sudbury, Minnow Lake, Moonlight Area and Lively
May 6 to May 12 – Southend, Copper Cliff Area, Azilda and Chelmsford
May 13 to May 21 – Garson, Falconbridge Area, McCrea Heights, Val Caron, Val Therese and Hanmer
April 22 to May 31 – Capreol and Deficiency Cleanup
Residents are asked to avoid parking overnight on municipal roads and to remove basketball and hockey nets from streets, until sweeping is complete. Residents are also asked not to place garbage containers and recycling boxes on roads and in gutters.
We thank residents for their patience and for understanding that noise and dust are inevitable during street sweeping operations.
