Denver starts street sweeping Tuesday: How you can avoid a $50 ticket.

Street sweeping season begins in Denver on Tuesday, April 2.

Denver’s Department of Transportation and Infrastructure (DOTI) is reminding residents that the parking restrictions that support the program will be enforced to keep sweeping operations effective.

The city says that street sweeping is important because it helps keep our air and water clean by removing dirt and debris. It also helps prevent storm sewer inlets from getting clogged, which can cause localized flooding.

To make sure the street sweepers can do their job properly, residents are asked to move their cars on specific days. The city puts up signs to let everyone know when street sweeping will happen. Denver is encouraging residents who park along the street to check the red-and-white signs on their blocks or enter their address online to find out when to move vehicles on their designated street-sweeping day.

Cars that aren’t moved on their monthly sweeping date will get a $50 ticket. Denver’s enforcement period runs between April and November.
