|Street and Traffic|
Road Striping: The Street Division is committed to public safety on the city streets. Road Striping is an essential part of modern transportation, including lane striping, turn-pockets, combo-lanes, and right-turn lanes.
Traffic Signs: Engineering studies traffic counts and survey information are used to determine whether a "STOP" sign, "YIELD" sign, or any acceptable solutions are required in a given situation. Once the warrants for a particular type of sign are met, the Street Division handles installation and sign maintenance.
Street Lights: The installation, removal, and maintenance is handled by the Street Division. In most cases, depending on funding, streetlights can be installed and maintained where they are needed. If a street light is out, you can report it to Public Works with the nearest address to the light and a light pole number (located approximately at eye-level of the light pole). The Department of Public Works is also currently working on an Energy-Efficient Street Lighting Project aimed at lowering the cost of street lighting.
Street Sweeping: The City offers Street Sweeping services for residents of Oakdale within the City limits. The focus for street sweeping is to loosen particles and reduce dust. It also removes metal particles and other hazardous waste products left by passing vehicles. Street sweeping is not intended to pick up large debris from the streets (i.e. leaves, branches, garbage, etc.). Please remove all vehicles from street on the day of your scheduled leaf collection. This program is currently suspended due to budget cuts.
