Street sweeping will begin on 20 April 2022 and continue until completion.
Similar to snow removal, we ask that you remove vehicles from the roads during sweeping. Additionally, as beautiful as they may be, please observe the street sweepers from a distance and give them plenty of space when driving through the neighborhoods.
This will take approximately 5 days. Sweepers will start on JBER-E and make their way to JBER-R.
How does it work?
Water trucks first wet the roads, this helps reduce the amount of dust that gets kicked up. The street sweepers then make their way down the road picking up any debris. Picking up debris prevents it from entering the storm drains and polluting Alaska’s pristine ecosystem.
In addition to cleaning the roads, some must be repaired. Potholes form when moisture seeps into cracks in the asphalt. Freezing temperatures cause the moisture to freeze (and expand). If you identify a pothole in your neighborhood, please contact our maintenance team by phone or via rentcafe.
