Routine street maintenance, including pothole repairs, crack sealing, and repairs to sunken roadway areas, is done on a regular basis.
When possible, quick temporary repairs are used to make the roadway safe for residents. These are replaced by permanent repairs as soon as weather and work schedules permit.
