We maintain 228 miles of roadway in Coventry.
Some of the many services we provide are:
Street Sweeping begins in April each year, weather permitting. We do switch the schedule every year to ensure that the same neighborhood is not swept first, or last. For example: If your neighborhood was swept last the prior year, it will be swept first the next year. We will always post a copy of our Street Sweeping schedule prior to commencement so that residents can prepare by moving cars out of the roadway. We encourage residents to sweep the sand from their sidewalks, before our sweeper is scheduled to come through their neighborhood. Please do not bag sand, as we are unable to collect it this way.
The Town performs various asphalt and concrete work in town. These tasks include: asphalt patching, pothole repair, asphalt sidewalk repair, asphalt berm repair and installation. We also perform repairs of concrete walks and curbs.
Brush Cutting & Trimming
Our brush crew works on a rotating schedule, as we travel from one end of town to the other, the brush is just starting to grow back. Typically, we begin brush cutting in the Spring.
Road Grading & Gravel Road Maintenance
Coventry is unique as it has rural sections that are much different from the more populated areas of Town. Many of these rural areas have gravel roads that require special machinery to maintain. We have an experienced road grader operator that grades all of our gravel roads on a rotating schedule. If you live on a gravel road and need to request maintenance please contact our office.
We have nearly 2500 catch basins within the Towns boundaries. The Public Works Department maintains all of these catch basins. DPW makes repairs, replacement, or rebuilds these catch basins. We are proud to be one of the few Public Works Departments that perform this type of work in house, utilizing our many skilled workers. The Town also oversees the proper maintenance of all detention/ retention basins.
Catch Basin Cleaning
The Town is now utilizing its own vacuum/ jetter truck. We are now able to extend the service time for catch basin cleaning from Spring to Fall. There now is a program to provide jetting of drain lines throughout the various neighborhoods.
