Chicago Department of Streets and Sanitation (DSS) has resumed their
seasonal street sweeping schedule, which lasts from April 1st to
November 30th. DSS' fleet of street sweepers help to
keep streets clean and prevent dirt and debris from entering the sewer
system - ultimately allowing for better drainage during a rain storm.

are asked to be mindful of all temporary and permanent street sweeping
parking restriction signage. To ensure curb-to-curb street cleaning,
temporary parking restrictions are posted the day before the work is
scheduled to begin on any street. Some arterial streets have permanent
signage that specifies a once-per-week period when parking is prohibited
for street sweeping.
take care to read all posted parking restriction signs and be aware
that street cleaning signs take precedence over other posted signs on
the street. On street cleaning days, the streets should be kept clear of
vehicles from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.
Vehicles that violate street-sweeping restrictions will be issued a citation, and may be relocated to a nearby site by tow trucks enforcing this parking restriction.
