2018 Road Resurfacing Projects: 

Mayor Frank G. Jackson’s enhanced budget, made possible by Issue 32, allows the City to embark on more street improvement projects in 2017 and 2018 than previous years. Projects span all City neighborhoods and wards. Highlights about this year’s road work:

  • Street resurfacing began April 16 and will continue through the summer, weather permitting.
  • Potholes are serviced year round, weather permitting.  The Department of Public Works has increased its pothole crews from three to 10 as a result of the passage of Issue 32.
  • This year, with the completion of the Pavement Management Study the City has a graded system that allows streets in the greatest need of resurfacing to be selected. The City is using the worst first approach to road resurfacing.
  • City projects it will resurface 120 proposed streets this year.
  • City is also investing in preventive maintenance on recently resurfaced streets to extend roadways’ high condition rating.  

For questions, contact the City’s Administrative Manager, Mrs. Cherita Anglen at (216) 420-7605.

Editor’s Note: Road construction invariably presents hazards to the public. All travelers are urged to use caution in construction zones. Public safety and the safety of our workers is a top priority.
