With over 350 centerline miles of paved streets, it is critical that Longmont take care of its streets to provide a safe and efficient transportation system. The City’s annual Pavement Management Program contracts with private sector contractors for replacement of broken curbs and sidewalks, preventive maintenance such as crack sealing, chip sealing and pavement overlay, and reconstruction.

Your Dollars at Work
The Pavement Management Program is made possible through the City's ¾-cent Street Fund sales and use tax.
Street projects for the Pavement Management Program are selected based on systemwide needs and priorities. These priorities are established after examining pavement condition, traffic volumes, and coordination with other utility projects. The Pavement Management Program is a long-term, strategic effort. Potholes, urgent repairs or basic care activities are performed through the City's street maintenance operation.
Street rehabilitation consists of any needed concrete repairs, followed by asphalt overlay and reconstruction. More details may be found in the letter sent to residents in affected neighborhoods, which is available through the link below.

Crews apply chip seal treatments to select area roadways, typically in August of each year. Check back for a list of selected roadways for 2020.
Crack sealing work typically takes place in May of each year. Letters will be sent to residents in affected neighborhoods and then posted here.
What to Expect
If your street has been selected for treatment, you will receive a project notification letter in the mail at least two weeks before work is expected to begin.
In the case of larger projects, as construction approaches, door hangers are also posted on affected homes to inform residents more specifically of the upcoming activities.
