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 Zone Map

Street sweeping begins with an initial sweep of main roadways to remove salt and dust that has accumulated over the winter months. Following the initial sweep, crews begin the formal street sweeping program that involves parking restrictions. 

There are ten separate zones for street sweeping in Canmore. Crews start and end in different zones each year depending on weather and street conditions.

Give our crews space for your safety and theirs. Expect sudden stops and unexpected turns.
