To report potholes, visibility concerns, or street sign problems, please call 608-729-1720.

Two types of repairs or maintenance are usually performed. The method used is determined by the condition of the existing road and other engineering considerations. Maintenance is performed annually.

Resurfacing includes pulverizing the existing asphalt surface and relaying a new layer of asphalt.

In chip sealing, a thin layer of asphalt is applied to the road surface, followed by an aggregate cover. Chip sealing increases pavement life, provides a waterproof seal, and improves traction.
