Weather permitting, an annual rite of spring in Minneapolis begins Tuesday, April 22. That’s when Public Works crews will start a comprehensive sweeping of all city streets to clean up the dirt and grime the melting ice and snow leaves behind. Beginning Monday April 21, drivers should watch for temporary “No Parking” signs along these streets to avoid a ticket and tow.
Videos – Street sweeping is explained in English, Hmong, Somali and Spanish as part of the City’s “Did you know...” series of short videos that can be viewed atwww.YouTube.com/cityofminneapolis and on City cable channels 14 and 79. Residents who have friends or neighbors who speak these languages are encouraged to share links to the videos.
English:See how and why Minneapolis sweeps streets and what you can do to help keep streets and waterways clean in this video from the Minneapolis “Did you know…” series.
Spanish: Vea en este video de las series “Sabia Usted” como y porque Minneapolis barre las calles y limpia las vias fluviales.
