Asphalt and Concrete Street Repair
The objective of asphalt street patching/potholing is to extend the life of the roadway until reconstruction is required. Asphalt repairs include pothole repairs, crack sealing, joint sealing and spray injecting. The majority of concrete street repair is done in response to Mains and Hydrant's utility cuts. Other concrete work is done in emergency situations such as a buckled street or storm sewer separation (cave-in).
Mudjacking and Foamjacking
This is the use of mud or foam to jack up the curb and gutter to enhance drainage. The Street Department works hand-in-hand with the Engineering Department to determine locations of concern within construction project areas. Mudjacking is also performed at the request of a property owner.
Gravel Streets and Alley
Regular maintenance of gravel roads and alleys allows for safer driving conditions and enhanced drainage from the road surfaces.
Street sweeping begins after the spring thaw and continues through the summer with routes swept monthly. This process occurs during the work day and also during the evening hours. Sweeping increases in the fall for leaf cleanup.
