The Street Division is responsible for maintaining a safe and dependable street system, allowing citizens and visitors alike to travel safely and efficiently. The Street Division coordinates maintenance for all City owned streets, sidewalks, storm drainage and all related infrastructure.
There are more than 142 miles of streets within the City of Statesville that the Street Division maintains. The Street Maintenance division provides repair services for sidewalk, curb and gutter, side ditches, shoulders, storm drainage and pavement.
The City maintains the majority of streets; however, most of the major thoroughfares are State roads or highways. Therefore, they are maintained by the N.C. Department of Transportation. There are also some subdivisions where the streets are privately maintained. To view a map that indicates which streets are City-maintained and which are not, click here.
Over time, all streets require some type of corrective maintenance. Techniques such as asphalt patching, surface treatments, and asphalt overlays are used to repair pavement and maintain an acceptable pavement condition. These activities are generally used to correct defects and tend to be more expensive than preventive maintenance alternatives.
