Potholes, line cracks and alligator cracks are defects in the roadway caused by environmental factors such as heat and rain. Natural forces begin the deterioration by creating small cracks. As the cracks grow deeper, chunks of the pavement material separate and are pulled out as cars pass over them or as rains lift them. If left unchecked, they can erode the dirt underneath the road way and create sink holes.
The City of Riverside Paving Crews rehabilitate small streets & City owned property. They will also mitigate & repair any identified road hazards. Larger paving rehabilitation projects are generally contracted to outside paving companies.
