PUBLIC WORKS NOTICES
Please check this page for information about current parking bans, street painting/sweeping notices, and transfer station closures. Notices will also be posted to the City of Sanford, ME Facebook Page.
PAVEMENT MARKINGS & PLACEMENT
Road painting activities usually last from mid-April through the end of fall (sometimes into November). Your first line of defense to avoid paint getting on your vehicle is to heed the warnings and follow the instructions outlined on MaineDOT's painting vehicles. Allow plenty of space between you and the painting vehicle.
Please call in all potholes to (207) 324-9135 x 1. The use of email is not intended for the reporting of roadway defects and SHALL NOT CONSTITUTE NOTICE as it cannot be assured that the email will be promptly received by the City’s Employees. If you have a concern about a roadway defect (such as a pothole) or an immediate infrastructure issue that needs to be addressed in Sanford or Springvale, please call the Department of Public Works at (207) 324-9135 x 1 from Monday – Thursday between the hours of 6:30 am to 4:30 pm.
