The Streets, Transportation and Engineering divisions provide many different services to keep our transportation system efficient, clean, and ready to use. Click an accordion below to check out each service provided by the City.
Concrete Curb & Gutter, Sidewalk, and Drive Approach Replacement
Click here to report a sidewalk issue. For questions or concerns about sidewalk ADA ramps or waterway construction, call the Engineering Division at 801-535-7961.
By City ordinance (14.32.300), the repair or replacement of deteriorated sidewalk, drive approach, and curb and gutter in the public way is the responsibility of the adjacent private property owner. Property owners can hire a contractor to accomplish the required concrete repairs, which requires a permit to work in the public way, or property owners can take advantage of the 50/50 concrete program.
Visit the Sidewalk Program page for more information on the 50/50 concrete program.
To obtain an estimate, please contact Kyle Biggs at Kyle.Biggs@slcgov.com or 801-535-6934.
Concrete Road Maintenance
The Streets Division strives to perform concrete maintenance on 11 lane miles of concrete roadway annually, weather permitting. Concrete road maintenance involves resealing the concrete joints and, on rare occasion, replacing concrete slabs. The joints are cleaned with high pressure air and concrete saws before they are resealed with hot polymer sealant. The purpose of joint sealant is to extend the life of the roadway by reducing the infiltration of water and foreign material into the joints which results in the loss of structural support. Further information regarding concrete road maintenance can be obtained by emailing Mitch Hansen at Mitch.Hansen@slcgov.com
Every resident and business will receive an advanced notice that explains the process approximately one week prior to the concrete roadway maintenance. One day prior to the application of the joint sealant, residents and businesses will receive a second notification explaining what actions to take. The day before the maintenance begins “No Parking” signs will be placed on the street. In the case that a vehicle is not moved, and the owner cannot be contacted, the vehicle will be towed to the nearest street and SLCPD will be contacted with the address where the vehicle was placed.
Road Paint Markings & Traffic Signs
Crews maintain and install traffic signs and roadway paint markings throughout the City for the safe movement of vehicular, pedestrian, and bicycle traffic. The signs team manufactures, installs, inspects, maintains, and replaces all City street signs. The paint markings team uses specialized painting equipment to apply over 14,500 gallons of paint and 100,000 pounds of reflective beads annually.
Call the Streets Division at 801-535-2345 or click here to report issues with signs or paint markings.
Asphalt Road Maintenance
Asphalt Repair & Treatment
Asphalt maintenance crews perform repairs and surface treatments on 1,850 lane miles of City-owned roadways, including activities such as chip seal, fog seal, slurry seal, crack sealing, level patching, pothole repair, and asphalt surface milling. The type of maintenance a road will receive is determined through a collaborative effort between the Streets Division and Engineering Division.
Learn more about asphalt maintenance on our surface treatments webpage.
Call the Streets Division at 801-535-2345 or click here to report asphalt roadway issues.
The Pavement Management Team collects and analyzes data to determine the most cost effective maintenance strategy for the City’s roadway network. The team uses an inventory database to store condition, construction, and maintenance information on a street network of 1,850 lane miles. Road conditions are evaluated by field inspection and automated pavement surveys and the data determines the type of maintenance plan each road receives.
Pavements that have exceeded their functional life are programmed for reconstruction through the City’s Capital Improvement Program. As with pavement overlays, ADA ramps are installed and drainage impeding damaged curbs are repaired on all reconstruction projects. Residents can view current, upcoming, and completed street reconstruction projects on the MyStreet homepage.
Further information regarding pavement management can be obtained by emailing David Jones at David.Jones@slcgov.com.
The Salt Lake City Snow Fighter crew strives to provide a safe, reliable, and efficient travel network for all modes of transportation. City crews clear snow from over 1,850 lane miles of City-owned roadways, 36 blocks of protected bike lanes (and growing), 7.8 miles of sidewalks located near freeway viaducts, and many other locations. The team consists of 45 large plow trucks and 90 Streets Division employees who work on standby 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to resolve snow and ice events within 36 hours after the end of a storm.
