The Street Maintenance Division oversees the maintenance and repair of the following.
The freezing and thawing on pavement causes the asphalt to expand and contract. This movement creates potholes. To report a pothole on a Worthington street, please call the division at (614) 431-2425.
American Electric Power (AEP) services all street lights in Worthington, except the Old Worthington light posts. To report a street light outage, please call the Department of Service & Engineering at (614) 431-2425. The department will notify AEP and oversee their work.
The department cleans all streets with curb and gutters several times a year. Regular street sweeping keeps the City clean and prevents dirt and debris from going into storm sewers, thereby improving local water quality. The City asks residents to do their part by not putting materials in streets.
Construction of any sidewalk within the public right of way by a property owner, agent or contractor first requires a permit from the director of service. There is no charge for this permit. For more information, please call (614) 431-2425. For details on the City's sidewalk and ramp programs, please call the Department of Service & Engineering at (614) 431-2425.
