Street Sweeping in Somerville

THANKSGIVING WEEK STREET SWEEPING: Streets normally done on the 4th Thursday will be done on Wednesday. Tickets will not be issued, but please move your vehicle if possible. Friday sweeping is still in effect, but tickets will not be issued.


About the Program

Our street cleaning program is essential to keep the City clean and reduce the risk of flooding and icing from storm drain backup. After Somerville experienced flash flooding in 2010, this program became more important than ever.

Streets signs show the time and date when there’s no parking due to street sweeping. We use a pattern to help residents plan ahead. For example, the first and third Thursday of each month etc. Street sweeping season runs from April 1st to December 31st. You can see the street sweeping schedule for your neighborhood below. You can sign up here to receive email reminders and/or emergency phone calls about your neighborhood.
