Street Sweeping

Spring clean-up is an annual street sweeping program that removes sanding materials and debris that has accumulated on roads and along major sidewalks and boulevards during the winter months. This program begins in April and runs until the end of June, please watch for signs in your area. Street sweeping is scheduled for June in many Ward 6 communities. Want to know when your street is scheduled? Go to and enter your address to see when street sweeping is planned for your street.

Pothole Repair

Repairing potholes is essential for safe and efficient roadways and requires ideal conditions, which include dry and warm weather. In Calgary, the annual pothole repair program begins in April and continues throughout the summer months. Typically, when a pothole has been identified, it is assessed and assigned priority based on severity. Although major roads and collector roads are inspected bi-monthly and monthly, respectively, The City relies on citizens to identify potholes on residential roads by contacting 311. Do you have a pothole on your street? You can report potholes by contacting 311 or using the 311 Calgary mobile app to submit and track service requests.

Gravel Lane Repair

Do you have a back alley that needs repairs? A variety of concerns, including drainage issues, gravel amounts, potholes, and muddy/dusty conditions can prompt repair. The back lane maintenance repair program runs from mid-June to mid-October. Go to, gravel lane repair and type in your community for the schedule of repairs, which will be posted in early June. You can also use the online Service Request form to report maintenance concerns.
