Street Sweeping

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.

The sweepers 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 every year: 

  • 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 crew.
  • 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.
