MISSOULA – The sweepers are hitting the streets in Missoula.
The annual street cleaning began Tuesday morning and will run through August in cleaning zones across the city.
City officials note that street cleaning is important to preserve air quality by sweeping up winter’s sand as it starts to blow in the spring winds.
The work also helps keep sediment and debris out of the stormwater drainage system.
What you need to know:
- Drivers are asked to park vehicles on the even-numbered side of the street on even-numbered days and the odd-numbered side of the street on odd-numbered days from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. In Special Sweeping Districts, parking is prohibited on both sides of the street from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Don’t dump yard waste or other materials onto streets or sidewalks, including dirt, landscaping materials, leaves, building materials and construction fencing. Crews pick up leaves only in the fall.
