CHICAGO — City drivers beware: Street cleaning begins next week — and so do the parking restrictions that come with it.
The Department of Streets and Sanitation will resume sweeping the city's streets Tuesday morning.
That means temporary parking restrictions for drivers along street-sweeping routes. A number of main streets have permanent signs specifying once-a-week restrictions that run 7-9 a.m. from April through October.
For all other streets, signs will be posted the day before sweeping begins. Generally, side streets are swept every four to six weeks, depending on the area of the city.
Drivers who don't heed the restrictions can expect a $50 ticket from the city. The full street-sweeping schedule in available on the city's website.
