2017 Street Maintenance

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 a resident 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.

Visit the 2017 Street Maintenance Schedule web page for the updated schedule.

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 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.
