Street maintenance activities are one of the primary responsibilities of the department. Performed using a combination of in-house crews and private contractors, street maintenance activities include, but are not limited to:
- Crack sealing
- Pavement marking
- Pothole patching
- Street sweeping
- Utility cut repairs
In general, public streets are designed to last an average of 15 years. However, the number of years may vary by street depending on traffic volumes, vehicle weight, and preventative maintenance activities. Beyond this point, streets typically require reconstruction, which is covered as part of the city’s annual Capital Improvement Program (CIP).
Reporting a Problem
To report a pothole, missing street sign, or other infrastructure problems, please call City Hall at (770) 345-5536 to open a work ticket. We will work diligently to address your concern.
