Streets / Traffic / Transportation

The Streets Division of Public Works has regular maintenance programs for sweeping, weed and tree trimming, alley maintenance and other street-related maintenance. We have an annual maintenance program which addresses problem areas of the streets. These include chip seals, overlays and street replacement, if necessary.

The City has 176 miles of streets. Of the 176 miles of streets, 166 miles are paved streets and 10 miles are dirt streets. The City provides a variety of life styles. You can live on a dirt street with a rural lifestyle or in an area with curbs, sidewalks and a 32-foot wide paved street. We have a paving program in which a minimum of 2 miles of dirt streets is paved each year.
