Keeping city streets in good repair is a challenge because of the extremes of Minnesota weather, especially the freeze-thaw cycles during winter.

The Streets Maintenance Division maintains city streets by repairing potholes and cracks, seal coating, blacktopping and sweeping. The division is also responsible for snow removal on the city's streets, public walks and bridge walks. See how potholes form.  

To report any street maintenance issue: please call our service desk at 651-266-9700. This number is answered live, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
