Before you park your car on Minneapolis city streets, look for a temporary "No Parking" sign.

Starting Tuesday, crews will begin sweeping city streets and they will need the roads clear of cars to do the job. Signs prohibiting parking will be posted at least 24 hours before a street is to be swept.

Parking will be banned from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the day listed on the temporary signs.  The signs will be removed once a road has been swept from curb to curb.  Once the signs are removed, motorists may resume parking.

Vehicles that are not moved of streets to be swept are subject to a ticket and a tow to the Minneapolis Impound Lot.

Over the next four weeks, crews will sweep more than 1,000 miles of roads. Updates and heads-up alerts will be sent to residents via automated phone calls and through messages posted to the city's Facebook and Twitter accounts. A schedule of which streets will be swept and when is available on www.minneapolis.gov/streetsweeping.
