The Streets and Roads Dept strives to provide some amount of dust mitigation, as available resources allows. Working with the Engineering Dept, gravel roads are evaluated for traffic volume, posted speeds limits, and overall condition of roads. It is not financially feasible to provide mitigation on all gravel roads. Usually the roads designated as collector roads, ie roads moving a significant volume of traffic onto arterial paved roads, are scheduled for dust mitigation. Mitigation is usually done in the warmer months of the year.
Dead Animal Removal
Residents of the District are encouraged to contact the Streets and Roads Dept to report dead animals. Streets and Roads staff will prioritize the pickup and removal of dead animals to reduce the risk of disease and other issues associated with these occurrences.
Tree Trimming/public right-of-ways
The Streets and Roads Dept staff are actively seeking out and removing all overgrown trees and shrubs located in the public right of ways that present a safety hazard. These include street signs that are covered, stop signs, and speed or hazard warning signs. Residents are encouraged to contact the Streets and Roads Dept to report this kind of condition, and where it is located.
Abandoned trash/illegally dumped trash
Trash that is located in public right of ways can be reported as well. Please try to provide any information you may have as to the party you believe may have dumped the trash. The Metro District will work with local law enforcement to hold those accountable who are illegally dumping throughout the District.
