Requests for new curb and gutter will be evaluated by the appropriate road district. Normally, new asphalt curbing is installed by district forces only to control drainage. While curbing is one of several methods used to control drainage, it is not the most environmentally friendly one. Open swales (small indentations in the road shoulder) convey the water while allowing for natural infiltration of sediment along the way, thus protecting the water quality in our streams and rivers. New concrete curbing is only installed by developers when communities or commercial properties are constructed.
Requests for curb and gutter rep
air should be directed to the appropriate road district
. Road districts are open from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. A supervisor will investigate your concern and respond to you within one week (one day if it is an emergency) to advise you of a schedule for any needed work. If the work needed to resolve your request is larger in scope, your request will be referred to the Infrastructure Management Division for prioritization. A representative from that division will keep you informed of the status of your request.
