Street sweeping in Denver begins this week, but don’t worry about parking enforcement

But if you can move your car, move your car.

The city’s annual street sweeping will start on Wednesday, but the city won’t be enforcing parking restrictions related to the sweeping for at least 30 days.

The city’s Joint Information Center said in an email it wants people who can move their cars to do so once it starts. But for now, if you can’t move your car, don’t worry about it.

The city lifted most parking restrictions earlier this month in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Denver is following the state’s stay at home order, which limits how much people can move about the city.

Leaving your car parked during a street sweeping day usually results in a $50 fine.

Street sweeping in Denver takes place every year from April to November. Last year crews collected 75,555 cubic yards of dirt and debris while sweeping 174,661 miles.
