Featured Projects

Annual Street Resurfacing

The City maintains approximately 278 miles of streets and street conditions are surveyed annually by an outside consultant. The total number of lane miles to be resurfaced will vary from year to year and depends largely on the cost of asphalt, as well as existing conditions.

New Sidewalk Program

Every year, the Board of Commissioners approve approximately $400,000 - $500,000 annually, allowing construction of approximately 1 mile of new sidewalk. After evaluation all new sidewalk requests, the Public Works department will construct these sidewalks, as funds permit.

Downtown Square Redevelopment Project

This streetscape project will keep the historical integrity of the downtown area and provide an opportunity for future generations to enjoy downtown Bowling Green.
