MEDIA RELEASE

(STILLWATER, OKLAHOMA / June 30, 2017) — Beginning July 5, the City of Stillwater will begin its routine evaluation of city streets as part of the Pavement Management Program.

For the next two weeks, a truck and a trailing vehicle with lights will be driving between two and five miles an hour along every city street.

Michael Stephenson, Transportation and Stormwater Department, said, “We ask that drivers be aware of the slow moving vehicles and to obey all traffic laws.”

The City’s Pavement Management Program prioritizes and recommends transportation improvements within the City's rights of way. It also identifies appropriate maintenance strategies (preventative maintenance, rehabilitation, reconstruction, deferred maintenance) for each street based on their condition and use.

Other advantages of this program include:

  • Improving the quality of the City’s streets in a financially responsible manner;

  • Implementing a plan that considers both immediate and long-term needs;

  • Promoting transparency by educating the public about our decision process.
