Road projects normally start in April through October. There are many pavement treatments that can be used, but completing the right repair on the right road at the right time is the key. Temperatures need to be warm enough for the asphalt plants to operate, so that the asphalt does not cool too quickly.
The Street Division is responsible for minor street patching such as filling moderate to severe pot holes, water break areas, alligator areas, settling areas, and minor drainage issues. They also identify bad asphalt and concrete areas for the Engineering Department to have evaluated for the right type of fix.
The Engineering Department is responsible for large scale capital improvement projects such as crack and slurry seals that are applied on in town streets, chip seals that are applied on outer roadways, overlays, concrete repair such as curbs, gutters, sidewalks, flow pans, and large drainage issues throughout town limits.
CDOT is responsible for road improvement projects on Hwy 392 (Main St) and Hwy 257.
