BEGINNING FRIDAY, MARCH 1, the city’s Public Works Department (DPW) will expand its street-sweeping program on Beacon Hill to include two additional months.
The program typically ended on Nov. 30 and resumed April 1, but starting this year, sweeping begins March 1 and ends Dec. 31. Existing posted schedules, as well as parking restrictions and enforcement, including the towing of illegally parked vehicles, will remain in place during the additional months.
Prior to March 1, the Boston Transportation Department (BTD) will make necessary changes to street signage to reflect the extended program.
All parking spaces on the odd side of the street will be swept on the first and third weeks of the month, while even side spaces will be swept on the second and fourth weeks of the month. Some streets will see new schedules for street sweeping starting on March 1.
To sign up for sweeping schedule notifications and weather-related cancellations via e-mail, Hill residents can register on the “NO-TOW” link on the city’s Web site at http://cityofboston.gov/publicworks/sweeping. Subscribers will be notified on the evening prior to the scheduled posted sweeping.
