March 13, 2017 Update: ACHD sweepers are moving into
neighborhoods starting this week, having finished the arterial and
collector roads in the county. The District has its entire fleet of
22 sweepers working in the nine zones across Ada County, matching
operators to the routes they know intimately to remove sand from winter
maintenance. Check back
here for updates on when the sweepers will hit areas within the
zones, information we hope to have available soon.
will focus first on arterial and collector roads, and streets that drain to
and can impact the Boise River. It is estimated that the first phase will
take four weeks. The focus will then turn to residential areas. It may take
up to 10 additional weeks to sweep the entire county.
The ACHD sweeping crew operates street sweepers all year removing leaves, dust
and sand from the roads. Sweeping is also part of the annual chipsealing
process. The following is the general schedule the sweeping crew follows
- March through May: Street sweeping by zone. The county has been
divided in nine zones for street sweeping purposes. See zone maps below.
June through September: Sweeping up excess chips behind the chipsealing
- October through February: Finish sweeping chips from
chipsealing if needed and zone sweeping. Crews are also busy sweeping
leaves as well as sand throughout the county after winter maintenance.
Note: Throughout the year we also respond to emergencies and complaints received via telephone.
