Bright yellow NO PARKING signs are popping up on downtown Juneau streets – it’s street sweeping time.
The annual spring cleanup started June 5th and will continue until the dregs of winter are swept away.
The Juneau Streets Department is asking people to move their vehicle on the day and time posted on the signs. Street officials say an area will not be cleaned if there are too many vehicles left on the street.
The big street sweeping machines are outfitted with a pickup head to suck up debris and dump it into a hopper. A round brush, called a gutter broom, swirls around curbs, gutters and other obstacles.
