Street Sweeping

Two street sweepers clearing a road in Prince George.

Parking restrictions

To allow for efficient removal of sand and gravel from streets, the following parking restrictions are in place until street sweeping operations are complete:

  • Residential: No on-street parking between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m.
  • Downtown: No on-street parking between 12 a.m…

Every winter the City uses, on average, around 7,500 to 10,000 tonnes of traction materials like sand on our streets and sidewalks. When spring comes, our street sweepers go about their business of clearing these materials from our roads 24 hours a day, five days a week.

If you see our crews out and about from around mid-March to early June, give them a wave, but make sure to give our sweepers a wide berth.
