Streets

The Streets Division maintains all streets in a safe, clean and usable condition. The division performs preventative maintenance on all streets and street signs, and works with the City Engineer to oversee asphalt overlays and street reconstruction.

Snow and Ice Removal

Snowplowing Service

The City's Public Works during snow storms busily works on removing snow from over 60 miles of City streets. The Public Works and Police Department have prioritized each City street for snowplowing based on the amount of usage of the street. The highest priority are the main collectors and streets on the hillsides. Main Street (Hwy 106) and Parrish Ln (Hwy 105) are maintained by UDOT - not Centerville. Due to limited manpower and equipment, dead ends and cul-de-sacs are the lowest priority and may not be plowed if there is only a few inches of snow. There are over 100 cul-de-sacs in the City and due to having to use smaller trucks, blades and limited space to store snow, they can take up to 20 to 30 minutes to plow EACH. Please be patient as they remove the snow - driving a snowplow is a tough job.

 

 

Street Maintenance

Street maintenance begins as early as mid-April and can continue until mid-October. We work hard at notifying residents that live on the streets that are immediately affected with these projects. If your home is tagged with information about road maintenance and it conflicts with construction, parties, weddings, etc, call the Public Works Dept as soon as possible so options can be looked at. The scheduled day of the work is usually too late.

Slurry seal is a rejuvenator that reseals the road surface. It is a sand-emulsion mixture that is spread upon the asphalt from curb to curb. This product will be ready for traffic in 6-8 hours after application.
Crack Seal is a rubberized asphalt material that fills the cracks and helps seal the road surface. It keeps moisture from seeping into the sub-base. This is usually performed one year prior to the slurry seal. This product can be ready for traffic almost immediately.
