One lane of traffic will be maintained for local traffic for the duration of each project and no detours are expected. Access to all businesses, residences and side streets will be maintained during construction. On-street parking will not be allowed during construction.

2019 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 2019 than previous years. Projects span all City neighborhoods and wards.

Highlights about this year’s road work:

  • Street resurfacing began April 25th and will continue through the summer.
  • Potholes are serviced year round, weather permitting. The Department of Public Works has increased its pothole crews from three to 10 as a result of the passage of Issue 32.
  • This year, with the completion of the Pavement Management Study 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 streets this year.
  • City is also investing in preventive maintenance on recently resurfaced streets to extend roadways’ high condition rating
