Road Repair Methods and Frequently Asked Questions

The City of Lake Oswego has limited funds each year to fund road repairs. The City looks at many variables when selecting which roads to repair and the repair method to use. Preventing roads from deteriorating is one very important factor. Some roads have deteriorated beyond simpler cost-effective repair methods and even an overlay of new pavement won’t “stick.” When selecting roads and timing, the City looks at areas in the City with other construction impacts during the year and how to schedule projects most efficiently with other infrastructure work. The mission is to keep the City’s roads overall in good condition.
