Paving & Sidewalks

The City of Prattville continuously repairs streets within the city limits and keeps records concerning the condition of streets. Money is allocated in the City budget so that a major street resurfacing project can be implemented every two years.

Based on the condition of individual streets, the amount of traffic and other related factors, the Engineering and Street Departments make a final determination of which streets should be included in the paving project. Streets that are in the worst condition are considered first for resurfacing. This list is presented to the Mayor and City Council for review. Specifications are drafted and bids are then let for the project.

To request service for problems concerning streets or street signage, submit a work order.

2012 Paving Projects

We have 4 paving projects included in the FY 2012 Budget. These projects are funded by federal transportation dollars. In order to take advantage of these funds, the City of Prattville will be required to provide a percentage of the overall costs (or matching funds, as the grantor calls it). Those included, at present, for 2012 are Cobbs Ford Road from US 82 to McQueen Smith Road at a total cost of $525,392. The City will need to cover $107,078 of that total bill. Wetumpka Street at a total cost of $325,000. The City will need to cover $65,000 of that total bill. Sheila Boulevard at a total cost of $325,000. The City will need to cover $65,000 of that total bill. Lastly, McQueen Smith Road from East Main Street to US 31 at a total cost of $325,000. The City will need to cover $65,000 of that total bill. Our "matching funds" will be paid out of the gas tax account. None of these projects will proceed until the dollars are actually in that account so that the City can pay cash. We will not take out loans or finance these projects in any capacity. We do not have a definite timeframe for these projects as the construction to prevent a sinkhole on East Main, as well as the sinkhole on Court St. and Spanish Oak (that will soon be repaired) must both be paid for out of the gas tax account.
