This responsibility is divided into the bituminous (blacktop) streets and concrete street crews. Approximately 80% of Edina's streets are paved with a flexible bituminous pavement. The pothole repairs, street sweeping, crack sealing, majority of overlay projects and sealcoating are performed by the bituminous street crews. The concrete crews handle the concrete street repairs, concrete curb and gutter and sidewalk replacements.
Edina finds that it is in the best interest of the residents of the City to assume basic responsibility for control of snow and ice on City streets. Reasonable ice and snow control is necessary for routine travel and emergency services.
