Quincy street and water crews begin "spring cleaning"

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

This Spring, you'll also start to see more construction on Quincy streets.

Quincy's Central Services Director Marty Stegeman says the crews have begun a city wide repair operation, looking for specific roads that need work.

Stegeman says North on 18th and Chestnut has seen significant wear and tear, and is on the list to be repaired soon.

Stegeman says patching crews have also begun work on potholes, relying on calls from drivers.

"We're still responding to calls for potholes as they arise, it's just an ongoing process, I guess similar to maintaining a house, we just have a little more to maintain," said Stegeman. "We'll start doing our street cleaning work as usual trying to clean up the leaves and the debris that just naturally seems to accumulate when you have snow, so it's a busy time of the year for us."

Stegeman says city water crews will also be working on repairing damaged sewer systems, as well as checking water mains through out the city.
