The Division of Streets & Roads maintains all city and county roads,
except those on the state and federal highway system. Our work includes:
Intersection curb repair
Sidewalk handicap ramp installation
Routine and emergency servicing of storm sewer drains
Maintenance of various bridges and certain creeks within the Urban Area
Potholes are often created by the freeze-then-thaw cycle in winter and by damage caused by snow removal plowing.
To report a pothole on a city maintained street, please call Lexcall 3-1-1 or 425-2255.
To report a pothole on a state maintained road, please call (859) 246-2059 or (859) 246-2355.
During normal times, we make every effort to repair a pothole that has been reported to LexCall within 48 hours of the call.
