About Street Maintenance & Repair
The Public Works Department Street Maintenance Division coordinates with the Development Services Department to maintain around 233 miles of streets and 22 miles of alleyways. This is roughly the same distance as a drive to St. Louis and back. General maintenance is done by the Street Division, while new construction and management of the Transportation Trust Fund program are handled by Development Services. The Street Division is constantly repairing potholes as the need exists and resources are available to perform the repair. Also, Street Division is repairing concrete street patches as resources allow. Weather also plays a big part in keeping our streets maintained. In addition to street repairs, the Street Maintenance Division is responsible for:

• Removes limb debris from City right-of-way after major storms
• Mows nearly 600 acres of right-of-way several times each year

• Provides street inspections for right-of-way/excavation permits
• Evaluates more than 100 miles of street yearly to record pavement conditions
