Yes, usually each ward council person is asked to submit a list of streets for their ward to be repaved. Iv don't know how many they can submit and how DPW prioritizes them. Ask your council member if you have questions about your ward.

Folks, what is the true story for the machinery at 6th and Jersey? Temporary filtration or sever relay station?

Monmouth street between 4th and 5th and 4th between Monmouth and Coles should get an award for utter stupidity.

The gas workers put a gas shutoff valve into a pit where a tree had been previously, in front of our shop, I guess because it was easier than putting it in the concrete. I don't think that tree is going to be re-planted any time soon.

I took a picture of the PSEG Downtown Demolition Crew coming in to rip a newly paved/unmarked 4th between Monmouth and Coles. The lines weren't even painted yet!!! This was in July of last year. An entire year later the road is only safe for off terrain vehicles. PSEG is laughing at Steve for his lack of follow through on "getting tough" to make sure they repave roads. Then PSEG tells me these streets are not even part of the "Energy Strong" upgrades and they dont have a timeline or requirement to repave.

My understanding was that the contractor doing the digging (etc.) was responsible for repaving within X amount of time. I vaguely recall that Candice Osborne was addressing this some time ago on our behalf. You can't lay asphalt in cold weather so we had to endure it for the winter.

I'd like to see our mayor give up his fat-ass SUV, where he rides in the back seat, for a week and ride his bicycle instead. THEN he'd do something about it.

In addition to the holes and crappy patches, has anyone else noticed that more often than not the trenching for gas/water was done almost directly down the painted bike lanes. And intersections that had right-turn-only arrows painted on the pavement are now just crummy patches and a bunch of downtown intersections are now like the Wild West...

every single road downtown is getting a hatchet job just a few years after they were nicely repaved. What a joke. We finally got every road repaved and looking nice and smooth and just a few years later every single one is torn up again for water and gas work. Why wasn't that done while or before they were repaved?

How many more years do we have to wait now and how much more money do we need to spend to get them looking decent again? 4th Street is a real piece of work especially.

Its funny they are deeming the annual repaving efforts a "Face-Lift" as if this work is more extensive than the annual repaving done yearly.

I'm shocked that Duncan Ave from West Side to 1/9, along side Lincoln Park is not on the list. That's been in terrible shape now for years and is a major Ward B artery.
