Annual Road Program

Each year, the Department of Public Works reviews street conditions to develop its annual road reconstruction program. The program is based on a number of factors such as street and sidewalk conditions as well as past and planned utility work. The proposed program is presented to the City Council Committee on Public Works, which then reviews and makes recommendations to the entire City Council.
