To view this season’s street sweeping schedule for the entire ward, visithttps://www.ward49.com/street-sweeping/. The street sweeping season begins on April 1st and lasts until the middle of November.
I post the 49th Ward street sweeping schedule for the upcoming season every March, but if you’re like me, you don’t have it memorized. And though my Ward Superintendent and his crew post the street sweeping warning signs at least 48 hours in advance, you may overlook them or forget they are there. Sweeparound.usprovides a handy reminder of the next scheduled street sweeping for your area so you can avoid those maddening parking tickets.
Keep in mind the street sweeping schedule applies only to residential streets. Permanent street sweeping schedules are posted on all major commercial streets in the 49th Ward and on Glenwood and Ravenswood along the CTA and Metra embankments. Those streets are swept once or twice a week.
I urge you to take advantage of this convenient service.
