The transportation system requires maintenance and repairs to ensure safety and prolong the system’s useful life.
The Transportation Department's street maintenance group protects the significant public investments in city streets, sidewalks, traffic signs, roadway markings, guardrails, trails and bike lanes.
Staff respond quickly to issues such as potholes, collision debris, trees blocking the roadway, vegetation blocking sight lines and tripping hazards. Standby support for maintenance needs is available 24/7 on an on-call basis. During severe storms, staff work around the clock to keep streets passable on a prioritized basis.
