Why is curb & gutter needed?
All new street construction and street reconstruction in the City includes concrete curb and gutter, with only limited exceptions.
Curb & gutter is installed for a number of reasons, including to:
- Channel storm water runoff away from the crown of the street.
- Collect water and convey it to a drain/discharge point.
- Reduce erosion from boulevards.
- Define the roadway limits, improving aesthetics.
- Strengthen and protect the edge of the bituminous surface from deteriorating.
- Provide a stable maintenance edge for snowplowing and sweeping operations.
- Reduce snowplow damage to boulevards, utility structures and mailboxes.
