The City of Airdrie’s Roads department will begin residential street sweeping on April 28 and residents are asked to help us make a clean sweep by ensuring their cars are moved off the street.
“We understand that there are more cars on the road right now with people self-isolating at home,” said Mike Avramenko, Team Leader of the City’s foads department.
“We’ll let people know we’re coming through Twitter, MyAirdrie notifications and neighbourhood signs so hopefully people have enough notice to move their vehicle.”
Residents should look for orange signs at entrances to their neighbourhood and make sure their vehicle is moved off the street during the dates indicated on the sign. Orange signs are located at main entrances to neighbourhoods, not on every street.
Residents are asked to park vehicles on their driveway or rear garage pad and to remove driveway ramps if they have them. Vehicles left on the street will be towed.
Cleaning the streets is important for all residents’ safety and for the environment. It removes winter debris, preventing it from entering storm drains and keeping city waterways cleaner. It also cuts down on air pollution caused by dust and makes it safer for spring and summer activities.
Residents can follow the crew’s progress and see which neighbourhood is up next on Twitter.
Street sweeping inquiries can be made to Roads s at 403-948-8415 or by visiting www.airdrie.ca/streetsweeping
The City sweeps over 380 lane kilometres of paved residential roads and getting the work done is a collaborative effort between the City and our residents.
