Road Shoulder Program

Road Shoulder RepairThis program fills in the drop-off edges of roads throughout the City.  This work is mainly performed on multi-lane roads since they carry the most traffic at the highest speeds, but they do a number of two-lane roads as well.  

Some unpaved parking or unpaved alley areas are also maintained by this program.  This five-man crew is made up of people from the pothole and tree trimming programs.  When the pothole and tree trimming programs are short-staffed they are shut down for the day and perform road shoulder work when necessary. The crew is dispatched multiple times per week, and 100-120 tons of base rock or millings are spread each month.
