Street Resurfacing

The DPW resurfaces streets each year throughout the entire City.  Selections are made based off of DPW's rating system (see Street Ratings 2023 layer on map above) as well as by use of requests to the City's 311 system.  Selections are also guided by the various funding sources that are available to the City.  Federal highway grants are only available to main thoroughfare while Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds are only available to residential streets in low to moderate income areas.  The City also receives CHIPS funding from New York State and sells capital improvement bonds and those funds are available to all City streets.

Street Inspections

The City rates its streets on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being excellent condition and 1 being very poor. The streets are inspected by engineers from the Division of Engineering and assigned a rating based on the condition of the surface at the time of the inspection. It is important to note that factors such as the annual freeze thaw cycles, utility cuts and other factors may cause the pavement condition to change in a way that is not consistent with its current rating. Please contact 311 to request an inspection of a street if you feel that the current rating does not reflect the current surface condition.
