Street sweeping season begins; City launches online tracker

CHICAGO — Snow-clearing season is, hopefully, over. On Monday, Chicago’s street sweepers hit the roads.

There’s something different this year that should help avoid some of those costly parking tickets — a new online tool that allows residents to track the sweepers in real time.

Locals can see upcoming schedules and make plans for parking options.

The tool is similar to the snowplow tracker.
