The spring sweeping program is officially underway in Vernon, cleaning the City’s transportation network. City crews will be sweeping seven days a week throughout the day for the next four to six weeks.
The program consists of daily road and sidewalk sweeping and flushing in low level areas, moving to higher levels. Two to three passes will be made by sweepers to remove debris, dirt and dust, with flushing equipment making the final pass.
Starting on Monday, March 15, sweeping will also be taking place on highways within city limits. Highway clean up takes approximately two weeks to complete.
Please look for signage in your area. Residents are encouraged to remove vehicles from roadways during this time to allow equipment to clean the entire roadway.
In addition to sweeping, City crews are also repairing pot holes that have resulted from the spring freeze/thaw cycles. The City asks motorists to keep an eye out for crews on the road and to slow down and use caution in areas where crews are working.
If residents find a pothole on a City street, they’re encouraged to report it to Public Works here. Pot holes on Highway 97 (32nd Street) and Highway 6 are under the jurisdiction of the Province and are maintained by its contractor, AIM Roads.
