The City's preventive maintenance roadway program is cost-effective and helps to extend the life cycle of area roads, while reducing the need for routine maintenance. Without a preventive maintenance program, severe cracking, potholes, reduced skid resistance, and rutting that traps water and causes hydroplaning develop at an increased rate as roads age. Preventative maintenance techniques utilized by the City of Jacksonville include:
- Pothole Repair - It is the aim of the Street Division to repair any potholes on city streets reported to us as soon as possible.
- Report a Pothole - If you see a pothole within City limits, please call us at 910 938-5333 and let us know. Please provide an accurate location of the pothole so we may pinpoint the location in a timely manner.
- Slurry Seal Coat - Existing non-structural surface cracking, raveling, weathering, and slipperiness can be corrected through a slurry application. Roadway deterioration is greatly reduced and the existing pavement receives a new uniform wearing surface.
