The Street Department is responsible for keeping street pavement clean and in good repair. The staff sweeps streets, removes snow and ice, repairs potholes, and takes care of minor asphalt and concrete paving jobs. The Department monitors the performance of City streets and establishes multi-year repaving priorities. The Department also performs the following miscellaneous tasks:
Ditch, culvert and water retention system cleaning and repair
Road Closures: Emergency, Weight Restricted, and Seasonal
Road-shoulder maintenance and vegetation control
Small day labor construction projects
Sub-grade repair, patching, maintenance paving and chip sealing
Traffic control device installation and maintenance such as signs, striping, crosswalks, and arrows
Water over roadway
The goal is to sweep each route every other month during the first full week of the month and to sweep Olympic Avenue every Friday morning. The schedule however is subject to change if higher priority projects or if emergencies come up, which does occur. Beginning in November, the sweeper may operate every day or as needed to keep up with the falling leaves. Try using the City's custom web application. Zoom in to see the routes. Select routes to get information and swipe the bottom border to see the weekly schedule.
