Street Department - Construction Projects
We Keep Owensboro Moving!
There are over 225 miles of streets within the City of Owensboro, and like any city, they deteriorate over time. Road reconstruction and repair is expensive. That's why the City Engineer reviews the condition of all city streets on an annual basis and selects the most damaged streets for repair. We do most of the work to repair our concrete streets. On asphalt streets, we do the curb repair work and a private contractor follows behind us to replace the asphalt. Sidewalk repairs are generally accomplished by a contractor. See the status of recent and pending construction projects below.
