Street Maintenance includes a wide variety of basic services including:
Seal-coating, patching, and potholes
Boulevard Tree Maintenance
Sidewalk and Trail Maintenance
Spring Load Limit
Proper maintenance of city streets will extend the service life of the roadway surface and consequently reduce the need for costly road repair.
The City of Maple Plain considers and funds street construction/rehabilitation projects based on the Street Improvement Plan which prioritizes improvements based on a variety of factors including age and condition of the road and replacement schedules of utilities located under the street. For more in information and to see when your street is scheduled for improvements beyond patching view the Street Improvement Plan.

Patching in the winter and early spring months is done with a material called "cold mix" which is more workable at cold temperatures. Regular city pothole patching with "hot mix" asphalt begins in late spring when asphalt plants re-open for the season. Hot mix asphalt is more durable than cold mix asphalt and provides a more permanent repair of potholes.
During the summer a comprehensive repair of potholes is completed based on Public Work's review of road conditions each spring. Due to wear and tear caused by road conditions this summer, this will be completed on some streets in Fall 2018 instead as listed below:
Maple Ridge Dr.
