Street Paving

The Department of Public Works is committed to maintaining and improving pavement to preserve our City's roadway network. The City of Trenton owns and maintains over 164 miles of paved roadways, some of which are owned by the County and State.

Roads to be paved are evaluated annually based on the City’s pavement management program considering various conditions, frequency of use, and available funding. The 2022 Road Resurfacing Budget is $1.5 million using federal funding from the American Rescue Plan.

Resurfacing is very weather dependent: rain and cool temperatures will delay work and impact the planned schedule for completion.
