Street repair and refurbishment is an ongoing process. Street Maintenance crews repair potholes, curbing and sidewalks, and replace deteriorated sections of asphalt and concrete as the need arises. Additionally, work units fabricate and install traffic calming devices, street signs and traffic barricades. They paint parking lines and traffic warning markers on our roadway.
The Street Maintenance Unit responds to the need of the City proper. Infrastructure, to include roads and sidewalks installed in private (gated), in some communities may not fall under the responsibility of this department or the City. Please check with your Home Owners Association.
In addition, two man teams working out of bucket trucks replace burned-out bulbs on city street lights. The City of West Palm Beach owns most of our streetlights; however, Florida Power and Light (FPL) does own some lighting equipment.
Refuse Collectors and Sanitation Operators, working throughout the City in the early hours of the morning, are able to identify streetlights requiring attention and direct Street Lighting teams to the proper locations.
