Street Maintenance

In order to prolong the life the City streets, the City of Waverly’s Street Division fills pot holes in streets and alleys, replaces damaged concrete panels, and performs crack sealing.

To report a pot hole on your street, call Public Services at 352-6247.

The Street Division also begins the process of street sweeping in the spring.  The City has 2 street sweepers which begin work at 4:00 a.m. while traffic is very low.

Seal Coating City Streets

Every year the City contracts out approximately 100 blocks to be seal coated. This process consists of spraying asphalt emulsion road oil on a street and then immediately applying limestone rock chips over the oil. The aggregate is then rolled as soon as possible to ensure the adhesion of the aggregate to the binder and pavement surface. This process has multiple benefits in that it seals out water from penetrating the road structure, seals cracks, provides a skid resistant wearing course surface and is cost effective.

A high quality of life, friendly and progressive merchants, and a college town atmosphere; this is Waverly, Iowa.
