The Streets Maintenance Division is responsible for all activities related to street maintenance including street repair, red curb painting, and street sign maintenance.

Street repair includes the patching of potholes, water and sewer street cuts and other damaged areas of City streets and alleys. 

The Streets Maintenance Division is also responsible for the maintenance of more than 3,200 street signs, and 237,000 linear feet of pavement markings. These signs and pavement markings are a critical part of the City's traffic control system. The Department's goal is to re-stripe center lines annually (using a competitively bid private contract) and other pavement markings, such as stop bars and cross walks, every two years.

Potholes in the street can be caused by many different things, including water that can get under the pavement and causes it to sink a little, causing a pothole to form. Potholes maybe reported 24 hours per day using the City's Service Request Form.

Did you know that under the Manhattan Beach Municipal Code property owners are responsible for maintaining the sidewalk in front of their respective properties? Under section 7.12 of the MBMC, property owners are responsible for making the necessary repairs to the sidewalk abutting their property.
