The city’s annual spring sweeping of streets and sidewalks is now underway and may result in noise and dust in your neighbourhood.
Residents in neighbourhoods in the downtown core of the city, such as Vanier, New Edinburgh, Sandy Hill and the Glebe are reminded that day and night on-street parking restrictions will be in effect between Tuesday, April 14 and Friday, April 17. Please note that dates are weather dependant and are subject to change without notice.
These restrictions apply to all vehicles, including those with on-street parking permits, to allow for effective sweeping of the roads. Temporary no-parking signs will be posted prominently in these areas. Vehicles parked where temporary no-parking signs are posted could be ticketed and towed to nearby streets.
Street and sidewalk sweeping improves public safety and helps prevent catch basins from becoming blocked with debris. Annually, the City sweeps over 6,000 kilometers of roadway and over 2,000 kilometres of sidewalks to keep Ottawa clean and green.
Your patience and cooperation in keeping vehicles off the streets during the spring cleanup is appreciated.
