Spokane Valley Street Sweeping Starts Next Week

You're doing it wrong if this is how your parking
strip looks.
The annual fall street sweeping starts in Spokane Valley next week to remove, dirt, leaves and debris from roadways. Sweeping will take place weekdays between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Street sweeping helps prevent clogging of stormwater drainage systems. If drains are clogged, pooled water can be dangerous to drivers. Street sweeping also helps prevent deterioration of roads due to standing water, and improves air quality by removing dust and dirt that gets into the air.

Valley officials ask you to please not sweep leaves  into the road. Also keep vehicles, trailers and portable basketball hoops out of the right of way while sweeping is underway.  The sweeping schedule is here.
