Residential Street Resurfacing

In addition to park enhancements, more Dayton neighborhoods will have newly paved residential streets this year as the City of Dayton continues a major street improvement effort. With a goal of having all streets in good condition within eight years, the City is resurfacing an estimated 60 lane-miles in 2017, nearly triple the amount of resurfacing last year. The 2017 resurfacing schedule began in early June and will continue through summer and early fall. See the list of streets to be resurfaced here
