What time does the Street Sweeper come by?

Roads in and around Boston are cleaned regularly to help with stormwater runoff. AM Sweeping Starts at 8am and PM sweeping starts at 12noon.

Vehicles cannot be parked on the street during sweeping hours. “No Parking” signs are posted with the days and hours so keep an eye out for that.

To see exactly what roads are swept and when visit https://www.mass.gov/guides/dcr-street-sweeping#-times-

Does the sweeper sweep when it’s raining?

Street sweeping is not always canceled because of rain. A light rain may actually help the sweeper to clean the street.
