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 than previous years. Projects span all City neighborhoods and wards.

Highlights about this year’s road work include:

    • Street resurfacing work for 2018 began on April 16th. Resurfacing will continue through the summer.
    • Potholes are serviced year round, weather permitting.  The Department of Public Works has increased its pothole crews from eight to an average of 10 crews daily as a result of the passage of Issue 32.
    • With the completion of the Pavement Management Study last year 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 residential streets this year.
    • City is also investing in preventive maintenance on recently resurfaced streets to extend roadways’ high condition rating using the crack sealing program.  

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.
