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!
