Ocean City has more than 125 miles of roadway (93) and alleys (33) that need continuous maintenance. Maintenance consists of street-sweeping, pothole identification and repair, hot asphalt repairs, as well as concrete gutter, curb and sidewalk repairs.
Drainage maintenance is critical to avoid flooding. Our teams are constantly inspecting and clearing drainage pipe using our drain truck. In addition, inlet covers are regularly cleared of debris to ensure maximum drainage flow. Outfalls on both the beach and the bay are inspected on a regular basis, guaranteeing proper performance during storm and tidal events.
