Welcome to the Street Division.

The Streets Division is responsible for a variety of seasonal and day to day work. Division personnel are committed to providing a safe environment for all means of travel and transportation throughout the Town of Danvers.

Road Maintenance

The Streets Division is responsible for maintaining over 120 miles of roadway throughout the Town of Danvers. Additionally, the Division oversees curbing, sidewalks, and handicap structures along roadways.

During the spring/summer and fall months, the Streets Division works on road improvements and repairs.  This consists of resurfacing and the reconstruction of roads and sidewalks. To see up to date information on current roadway improvement projects  you can click here, or visit the "Roadway Improvement Projects" tab.

During the winter months, when the division is unable to continue paving procedures, cold patching will be used for temporary repairs. The division will continue to make roadway repairs and fill potholes as needed throughout the winter months. After the seasonal weather events have ended, division personnel work to repair damage caused to the streets, curbing, and sidewalks from plowing and snow clean up.
