The street division is responsible for the maintenance of city streets, public roads and alleys. They oversee refuse pickup and recycling, miscellaneous cleanups, street sweeping and dead animal disposal. The division maintains 155 miles of streets and is responsible for pot hole and blacktop repair, painting and stripping, mowing in the right-of-ways and on freeway entrance ramps. They repair and replace traffic lights, pedestrian crosswalks, street lights, pick up leaves, and remove snow and ice. The division is responsible for the placement of hanging banners, flags and all holiday decorations, barricades, road closures and posting of no parking signs for all special events.
The City implements an annual street maintenance program to maintain and improve the roadways for the safety of the traveling public. The Street Maintenance Program operates from late spring through fall. Projects include resurfacing of various arterial and residential streets, sidewalk and curb ramp reconstruction, bike path maintenance and crack filling.
Each year, Grove City identifies and evaluates the roadways considered to be in poor condition and prioritizes those street segments for preventative maintenance and repair.
Residents on a street selected for maintenance will be notified by a door-hanger placed on their door no less than 48 hours prior to construction activities. The door-hanger will indicate the date, duration, and construction activity to be performed, as well as any special information you might need including contractor contact information, roadway parking restrictions or minor access restrictions. “No Parking” signs will be posted in appropriate areas no less than 48 hours in advance of any parking restriction.
Although the City strives to keep maintenance inconveniences to a minimum, at times the work required necessitates street or lane closures and temporary sidewalk and driveway closures. Your patience is greatly appreciated as we continue to create a community that residents can take pride in. If you have questions concerning the timing of these projects, contact the Grove City Service Department at 614-277-1100.
