DENVER – Seeing a ticket on your parked car may seem like a prank for April Fool's Day, but residential seasonal street sweeping does, in fact, start Tuesday.

Denver Public Works Street Maintenance crews will sweep residential streets from April through November during the first four weeks of the month. No citations are issued if there is a Tuesday that falls on a fifth week.

If you don't pay attention to the sign on your block, you could face a $50 parking citation.

Every year, Denver street sweeping crews sweep approximately 100,000 lane miles of Denver streets and collect 42,000 cubic yards of dirt and debris.

Denver Public Works Street Sweeping program is made up of 28 street sweepers and 10 dump trucks.

A reminder website has been set up by the city to help remind residents when to avoid street sweeping areas. You can sign up to receive a free email reminder of your street sweeping day by visiting www.KeepItCleanDenver.org.
