Street Sweeping

Each spring, crews sweep sand and dirt left on the streets from the winter season. Street sweeping usually begins in mid-April, depending on snow melt. 

Street Sweeping Zones

There are ten separate zones for street sweeping in Canmore, as indicated on the map below (click map to enlarge). Crews start and end in different zones each year, this is decided by weather and street conditions.
