City of Regina crews begin their annual sweeping of residential streets Monday.
Parking on streets being cleaned will be banned during sweeping, which takes place from 4 a.m. to 10 p.m. Signs advising residents of the ban will be posted in areas to be cleaned a day or two ahead of sweeping.
On Monday, crews will clean streets in the following areas: Maple Ridge, Lakewood, Rochdale Park, Sherwood Estates and McCarthy Park.
Drivers should exercise caution when passing cleaning equipment as visibility may be restricted by flying dust.
Children should be kept away from cleaning machines because of stones and other flying debris.
Sweeping is subject to weather conditions. A daily schedule will appear in City Beat.
For more information about the street sweeping program call 777-7000.
A new audible pedestrian walk signal will be activated at the intersection of 12th Avenue and Scarth Street Monday morning.
The signal, an aid to assist the visually impaired in crossing streets, will start at 9 a.m.
The signals, sponsored by Crown Life Insurance and McCallum Hill Inc., will operate daily between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m.
