The City of Chicago is currently in Phase Four: "Gradually Resume." Many City services have adjusted hours or locations and may require health screens prior to entering their physical spaces. Please call ahead or visit any department's website to get additional details, or visit chicago.gov/covid-19.
One of the most recognizable images of the Chicago Department of Streets and Sanitation is that of our Snow Fighting Trucks plowing and salting city roadways during a Chicago snow storm. In fact, every time our full main fleet of Snow Fighting Trucks does just one pass of our entire route system they have traveled some 9,456 total lane miles.
Visitors to downtown Chicago might recognize our "Street Ops" personnel as the people who hand sweep street waste.
