Much of the work performed by the Coon Rapids Streets Division involves direct maintenance to the city's asphalt surfaced roadways. Minnesota's harsh northern climate is abusive to less traveled neighborhood streets with a relentless cycle of freezing and thawing.
Maintaining City Roads
Many roads which bear a higher traffic load need more frequent care and repairs. As a result, throughout the spring, summer, and fall the Streets Division crews can be found filling and patching potholes, sealing cracks in street pavement, and repaving larger areas of roadways in need of repair.
If you encounter crews working on roadway please proceed in a cautious manner by slowing down and adhering to the traffic control methods in place during construction.
