Street Construction

Due to concerns about the economic impact of the COVID-19 outbreak, the City Council postponed the 2020 Pavement Management Program (PMP) and associated special assessments. The Council will consider whether to move forward with other street projects this year at upcoming meetings.

While postponing the PMP acknowledges the financial impact of the coronavirus crisis on residents and the City, it doesn’t change the City’s commitment to improving its infrastructure. Crews will continue to patch potholes and make small repairs as needed this year. The status of projects for next year will be considered as the situation evolves. The COVID-19 page on the City website will have updated information about the status of City services.
