Department of Public Works Releases Fall Road Paving Schedule

Residents can now submit roads to be reviewed by City staff

Trenton, N.J. – The City of Trenton Department of Public Works released their Fall paving schedule today. A list of roads to be paved is below, and will be available and updated at trentonnj.org/paving. Residents can also now email recommended roads for resurfacing to paving@trentonnj.org

"The City is giving full effort to resurface every potholed street in every ward across the City. But we have personnel, budget, and weather restrictions that can impede progress," Mayor Reed Gusciora said. "We're tapping every resource and working toward a more transparent and responsive process for the safety and convenience of our residents."

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

The 2022 Road Resurfacing Budget is $1.5 million using federal funding from the American Rescue Plan. The Department also invested in a new double-drum roller this year.

The street improvement process involves two phases and four steps:

Preparation phase

  • Removal of the existing top asphalt surface (milling)
  • Setting manholes covers and any roadway base areas

Paving phase

  • New asphalt applied; actual paving of the roadway
  • Laying any line striping and traffic markings

Last year, the Department of Public Works filled over 3,000 potholes, work which can be done year-round, but was limited in resources for full road paving due to the pandemic and budgetary restrictions. In the two years prior, the City paved 28 segments totaling 7.5 miles of roads.
