The Maintenance Division repairs potholes, seals
pavement cracks, patches street failures and resurfaces many miles of Lakewood
streets each year. Pothole repairs are completed as soon as practical, and
other street repairs are prioritized and completed as resources allow.
Resurfacing is scheduled several years in advance. The process includes
sealcoats which seal streets and prolong their useful life, asphalt
overlays on streets that have fallen into disrepair, and curb, gutter and

pavement is failing are first rotomilled to prevent excessive buildup of
asphalt at the edges and crowns of streets. Next, crews patch any failed
street areas. Then they spread a layer of asphalt ranging from 1 to 2
inches thick over the street to restore a good riding surface and build up
the pavement structure, giving it more strength.
Badly deteriorated sections of
curbs, gutters, sidewalks and drainage crosspans are removed and replaced on
streets that are scheduled to be resurfaced. Concrete repairs are also
completed on streets that are not scheduled for resurfacing in the current
year. These repairs are limited to areas where trip hazards or other
dangerous conditions exist.
