The Streets Maintenance (SM) Section is responsible for many of the activities related to streets operations within the city. These include barricading, road closures, detour routes and other traffic control requirements for special events. Employees perform crack sealing, asphalt repairs, snow and ice control, guard rail repairs, street sweeping, and pothole repairs.
Each year the SM Section provides the barricading and detour routes required by special event activities. Employees handle all of the parades and special events that require street closures. Crews are trained and certified in safe procedures for closing roadways, setting detours, and maintaining traffic.
The hot asphalt repair crew operates from May thru October. The sweeping program begins in May and continues through November each year. Each street is swept approximately once a month.
