The Annual Street Resurfacing Program is designed to improve the quality of your street and delay the
need for total reconstruction.
The City Engineering Division rates streets and
curb & gutter every two years. Streets with a
pavement rating of 5 or less on a scale of 1 to 10
(10 being a new street) and a curb & gutter rating
of 6 or greater are ideal candidates. Streets and
curb & gutter with lower ratings require extensive
replacement. They are patched until they are
candidates for reconstruction.
The goal of resurfacing and preventative
maintenance is to extend the life of the street 30
years or more before a full reconstruction project
Please contact the Engineering Division at (608)266-4914.
You may make arrangements to have the marks and

driveway and sidewalk in front of your property, which
was inspected last fall and determined to be in need of

curb & gutter sections intended for replacement. If
curb & gutter is marked for replacement in front of a
driveway, then it may be necessary to replace a portion
or all of the driveway apron. This may be reflected on

If you have objects such as invisible fence,
plantings, sprinkler system or pavers within 12
inches of the curb & gutter without a permit, the
objects may be subject to removal and/or repair
at the property owner's expense. Removing them
or marking these objects may reduce the risk of
Restoration begins as soon as possible after new
curb & gutter, driveway apron and sidewalk have
been poured. Contractors are required to use
high quality topsoil and seed. You can assist with
the restoration by watering the ground lightly

twice. Then water more heavily and less
