Pendleton to start sweeping up gravel put down during storms

PENDLETON, Oregon — City of Pendleton crews were busy with the late winter storms spreading more than 1,200 tons of gravel on the roads — most of it in just one month.

Now, it’s time to sweep it up.

Public Works Director Bob Patterson asks people to help speed the process when, starting Monday, a mechanical sweeper hits the streets.

“We’re shooting for about seven and a half to eight weeks.  And then we’ll have the follow-up with just our vacuum sweeper and that one it takes us about eight to twelve weeks to get through town, depending on any issues,” Patterson explained.

The city will notify residents when the sweeper is scheduled for their neighborhoods and asks that their vehicles not be parked on the streets.
