WELCOME WARMER WEATHER AND SUNNY DAYS!
Crews are preparing for the 2015 chip seal season.
The first task is to seal cracks in the work zone area of Lonestar, North Canyon, Davis, and Northside Blvd. Crack sealing should be complete by April 9. Crews are also patching potholes in Moss Pointe, Asbury Park, and Crestwood Subdivisions.
Chip sealing will begin in June.
Alleys will resume by the middle of this month April 13. The crew will continue blading towards the south end of town.
Each spring Crews patch potholes throughout the City that developed over the winter, while crews attempt to patch holes as they emerge the work never ends.
The Street Division has a crew employed during the spring and summer that takes care of weeds in the City right of ways and on City property.
Weed management control plans consider the type of weed, severity of infestation, proximity to water, trees and other native or desirable vegetation. Prevention is the first line of defense. People, animals, and equipment transport and distribute weed seeds. Early detection and maintenance is key in identifying and controlling high priority areas. Broad spectrum or nonselective herbicides control a large variety of vegetation and are best applied from late May to early June when the weather is warm and dry.
Maintenance and replacement of the City’s 9,000 plus regulatory, warning and informational signs is a continuous project.
Miscellaneous and street name signs are logged so that the last week of each month they can be repaired and/or replaced as necessary. However, regulatory signs are taken care of immediately.
Signals help municipalities save money, keep the roads safe and reduce accidents. Preventive signal maintenance is performed at regularly scheduled intervals. Crews also respond to any reported equipment system malfunctions such as lamp burnout, failure of the detection sensor, and other miscellaneous mishaps. Our signal technicians are constantly working to make traffic signals run smoothly.
If you have a concern please call the office or use our online request form.
