Roadways are maintained by the Public Works Streets Division. The chief responsibilities of the Streets Division are:
The division maintains more than 875 miles of city-owned streets. In 1992, the responsibility for paving and reconstructing our city's road system was also assigned to this division. Since that time, hundreds of miles of roads have received pavement overlays.
Other areas of maintenance responsibilities include street sweeping, applying micro surfacing to curb and gutter areas. The division uses a pavement management system to evaluate street conditions and determine a paving schedule. A five-year road maintenance program has been developed and is updated each year.
A catch basin cleaning program has also been implemented. This drainage system is targeted at those streets with curb and gutter inlets.
