Street Maintenance and Paving

For the 2020 Fiscal Year the city budgeted $1,100,000 for paving. Approximately 40 miles of streets have been paved between 2016 -2019.  An effective paving program will pave 15 miles of streets each year with a total expenditure of $1,200,000. In coming years, the paving budget will be increased $100,000 per year to meet the paving demand for the city. To view the current paving list, click the links below.

FAQ:Why did my street not get paved?

Streets are graded by city engineering staff on a yearly basis. Street paving is completed based on the street ratings and not particular location in a Ward. Roads with the lowest rating are given priority over higher graded streets. This approach maximizes paving dollars to address the most critical streets each year.

Note: Once construction at the schools along Arrow Drive is complete in 2020, the street will be paved as funding is available. Construction traffic damages streets and subsurface stability.
