Curb Repair Program
The annual Curb Replacement Program focuses on replacing deteriorated curb along residential streets scheduled to be resurfaced within the next year. The intent is to complete the curb replacement before resurfacing in order to avoid damaging the new pavement that typically occurs during curb replacement. This sequence reduces disruptions to neighborhoods, and provides a finished looking street product when the resurfacing is completed. Generally streets with major deterioration are selected for the program. The curb on these streets is entirely removed and replaced with new concrete curb & gutter that meets the current City requirements for concrete materials. The new requirements for concrete materials are considerably more durable than the material that was placed by developers in the past.
The replacement of failing curb and gutter reduces potential of pavement damage from water infiltration, reduces resident complaints and lessens load put on the City of Lee's Summit Operations division that is responsible for repairing the City's curb infrastructure.
