It’s time to clean up what winter left behind

Thursday, April 25, 2019 - 9:06am

Update: Due to weather, street sweeping operations were slightly delayed and will begin on May 2. 

 

The 2018-2019 snow season has been a difficult one, complete with early snows, frigid weather, and a record-breaking March blizzard. The City is now left to clean up what snowplow operations have left behind. Cul-de-sacs were the hardest hit and residents have been contacting City staff for assistance in removing the large piles of sand and gravel. That’s why a special sweeping crew will be deployed to clean up these narrow and hard-to-clean residential roads.

 

Beginning April 29, two street sweeping crews will be working to clear both cul-de-sacs and Priority 1 (arterial) roadways:

 

  • Cul-de-sacs: All 120 City-maintained cul-de-sacs will be swept of debris. The cleanup efforts are expected to take about two weeks. Crews will not be sweeping the entire street, but strictly focused on those areas of melted snow stockpiles. 
  • Priority 1 (arterial) Roads: Standard sweeping operations on streets that provide critical connections through the community such as Castle Pines Parkway, Monarch Boulevard, Lagae Road, etc. will take about one week to complete.
