Street Sweeping Season Underway

Street Sweeping Season Underway

The RMWB has announced that street sweeping season has commenced.

Drivers are advised to be mindful of No-Parking signs as crews begin to sweep the streets of Fort McMurray.

Before these signs are posted, electronic message boards will be placed at the entrance of neighbourhoods approximately seven days before sweeping begins – to advise residents of updates.

Primary and secondary routes will be swept first, followed by residential neighbourhoods – which includes recovery and rebuild areas.

Crews have already begun sweeping along Franklin Avenue, Thickwood Boulevard, Confederation Way, Clearwater Drive, Abasand Drive, Gregoire Drive, Mackenzie Boulevard and Saprae Creek Trail.

On Tuesday, sweeping will begin in Waterways, Abasand/Grayling Terrace, Beacon Hill, Prairie Creek, Thickwood, Dickinsfield, Wood Buffalo, Timberlea and downtown.

As a result, the municipality is posting temporary No-Parking signs in areas to be swept for a minimum of 48 hours.

Vehicles in these no-parking zones will be ticketed and will be at risk of having their vehicle towed.

Crews will begin sweeping residential neighbourhoods in June and rural communities in late May – pending weather conditions.
