The Town of Irondequoit Department of Public Works maintains 332 lane miles of Town-owned roads.
Categories of Road Maintenance
Maintenance falls into 3 categories for roads:
- Routine Maintenance - This includes asphalt patching, sign installation and repair, and roadway sweeping.
- Preventative Maintenance - Surface treating provides a new wear surface and limits infiltration of water that degrades the structure of the road. Surface treating methods include crack filling, chip sealing, and slurry sealing.
- Capital Improvement - The major rehabilitation of an entire road, which encompasses removal and reinstallation of concrete gutter and drainage inlets, milling the asphalt surface, and re-applying new asphalt.
Maintenance Efforts over the Years
The Town has aggressively invested in local roads for the past 6 years with capital improvement and preventative maintenance and the Department continues to invest for the future of quality roads throughout Town.
