Street Maintenance


Services Provided

The following provides some general information regarding scheduled street maintenance.

Asphalt Overlay Program

The City of Federal Way Asphalt Overlay Program is an annual street maintenance project in which selected streets are repaved along with the repair and improvement to curbs, sidewalks and wheelchair ramps. A systematic pavement management system (PMS) is used to manage and prioritize street improvements. The streets pavement condition index (PCI) is developed through inspection every two years. In addition, other pavement preservation techniques are used to maintain the city's street network such as crack sealing and structural patching.

The Asphalt Overlay History Map will provide you with the history of when streets were last repaved. The 2018 Overlay Program will provide information on the upcoming streets to be overlay.

Snow & Ice

City crews provide snow and ice control as needed. Prior to a predicted event, crews may treat streets with anti-icing chemcials (salt brine), that prevents ice from adhereing to the pavement. The attached de-icing map shows the primary routes that will be treated as weather conditions and resources allow. The snow plow map shows primary and secondary snow plow routes during snow and ice storms.
