Street sweeping will continue in Huntington on Tuesday
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) – Huntington’s city-wide street sweeping program is scheduled to resume on Tuesday.
Officials say the program is part of an effort to minimize the impact of stormwater on Huntington’s roads and prevent pollution and debris from entering the sewage system.
Residents are urged to keep an eye out for new signs in the city to provide more advanced notice.
Each Friday, large yellow signs will be placed along the street sweeping routes for the following week to notify residents that the street sweep is scheduled in their area and to watch for “No Parking” signs.
The day before the street sweeping in a given area, the yellow signs will be replaced by white “No parking, street sweeping” signs which remind residents to remove their vehicles from the roadway during the scheduled street sweeping hours, namely 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Huntington Police Department will patrol and issue summons to vehicles parked in the sweeping area during scheduled hours.
Only the curb streets will be swept and residents are not allowed to place cut grass, leaves and tree branches on the street. Street sweepers will not remove these items.
The schedule will be established on a weekly basis, although it is subject to change due to weather conditions. In the event of weather conditions affecting the schedule, operations will be postponed depending on the day (s) concerned.
During the first two weeks of June, the following areas will be swept:
