Each spring the Street Department reviews the street signs within the city limits, excluding highway 82 which is maintained by CDOT, for maintenance. This includes replacing faded or discolored signs and repairing signs damaged over the winter season. This is an important part of the Street Departments responsibilities.
To report any damaged or missing signs call to 920-5130 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Sweeping & Flushing
Keeping our streets clean is one of our goals. The sand and grit left over from the winter sanding contributes to our PM10 levels. By keeping the streets clean, we can reduce our PM 10 levels. Please keep in mind parking restrictions may apply, streets and parking lots may be signed "No Parking" 72 hours in advance of work and cars parked illegally may be towed at the owners' expense.
Street cleaning usually begins once the weather clears enough to allow access to the streets. The flush truck is used as early in the season as possible to help reduce the amount of dust in the air, remove the dirt from the streets to allow for the timely painting of crosswalks and striping of the streets.
The basic sweeping schedule is:
Monday: Core, Highway, Smuggler and East End.
Tuesday: Core, Highway, South side and South Hills.
Wednesday: Core, Highway and West End.
Thursday: Core, Highway and Cemetery Lane area, Maroon Creek, Castle Creek, ARC, Burlingam, Water Place.
We strive to repair any pothole within the city limits as quickly as possible. If you find a pothole, call us with the exact location. Please keep in mind the asphalt pavement on Main St is a State Highway and it is maintained by the Colorado Department of Transportation. To report a pothole within the city, please call 920-5130.
Q. What is the difference between a pothole, a sinkhole, and a utility cut?
A. A pothole is a chunk of asphalt that is missing from the roadway. A sinkhole is where the asphalt is intact, but has sunk due to instability of the ground beneath it. For repair of a pothole or a sinkhole, please contact the Street Department at 1-970-920-5130, or by e-mailing email@example.com.
A Utility Cut occurs when someone has cut into the street to access the utilities below. Most of these are done by private contractors. If it has not been permanently patched in a long period of time, or if the patch has sunk severely, please contact the City Engineering Department at 130 S Galena, Aspen, CO 81611, 1-970-920-5080 or EngineeringHelp@cityofaspen.com.
