The Street Division is composed of the Public Works Superintendent and 14 personnel, and is responsible for:

  • Maintenance of all City-owned properties
  • Maintenance, marking, and cleaning of over 36 miles of City streets
  • Sidewalk repairs and construction
  • Curb and gutter repairs and construction
  • Storm drainage

Road Jurisdiction

There are also streets and highways running through the City Limits maintained by the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT), such as U.S. 70, parts of the U.S. 221 Bypass, U.S. 221 Business, NC 226, Baldwin Avenue, Finley Road, Rankin Drive, Spaulding Road, Reservoir Road and other streets.

Please see the following links to a map and list of streets that are part of the City's Powell Bill system and which are maintained by the City:

The majority of public right-of-way mowing of City streets and NC DOT streets within the City limits is performed through a private contractor.

The Division works on many sidewalk and curb and gutter construction and repair projects throughout the year. A list of prioritized projects is available from the Public Works Department at 828-652-4224.
