People who park on the streets of the Molly Brown neighborhood, have more than just parking tickets to look out for this week. The city tows between 11th Avenue and Colfax Avenue and Logan Street to Clarkson Street on the first street sweeping days of the year. They've done this every year for two decades. Cars aren't getting taken away, but simply moved around in order to allow street sweepers to fully clean. It will only happen April 2 - 5. 

In 2018, Denver street sweeping crews swept 175,161 lane miles of Denver streets and alleys and collected 77,678 cubic yards of dirt and debris, according to Denver Public Works.
