Shoulders

Shoulder Work

Shoulders are to provide a smooth transition from the paved roadway to surrounding native land. Periodically, a dirt berm builds up at the edge of the roadway which prevents water from getting into the ditches. This berm must be removed to ensure adequate drainage. The City also takes care of adding crushed rock and removing brush from the shoulders, where appropriate. Shoulders are maintained out to four feet from the edge of the street.
