Cone Zones

The Town is responsible for maintaining all paved and unpaved roads in the Town. Maintenance includes road blading, street sweeping, snow removal, asphalt maintenance, signing and marking, shoulder work, roadway clean up, and concrete work. The Town of Erie uses a variety of approaches to extend the service life of a road. In addition to pothole filling and patching the Town uses hot chip seal, crack fill, slurry seal, double chip seal, mill, overlay, and chip seal.

Statistics

  • There are 138.5 miles of streets in Erie.
  • 15 miles of streets have aged past their remaining service life (15 years): County Line Road, Erie Parkway, Cheesman Street, Vista Parkway, Holbrook Street, Briggs Street.
  • In 2019, $1.5 million was spent on street overlay projects and $500,000 on street reconstruction projects.
  • Following a 2020 Street Improvement Project, the annual cost of street maintenance ranges from $3-$4 million.
  • In 2021, road maintenance crews completed 7.7 miles of a planned 8.8 miles of road resurfacing by October. This is the length of 135 football fields end-to-end, or the height of three fourteeners if the mountains were stacked on top of one another. Amazing work despite the supply chain issues and labor shortages!
