City of Lincoln
What is the Process?

The morning Street Maintenance shift sweeps arterials and central business districts.  Business districts are swept about once every 4 days and arterial streets are swept on about a 15 day rotation.  Residential streets are swept 3 times yearly.  There are 18 residential districts consisting of 4 sections each, except district #1 which only has 2.  The spring sweeping starts around the middle of March, which is usually the longest.  Summer sweeping usually begins around July followed by the Fall sweeping beginning the 2nd or 3rd week of October.   Individual street sweeping requests are not possible other than emergency situations approved through the Maintenance Coordinator.
