Road maintenance: It’s not just streets

Road maintenance goes further than the bump your car hits every morning on the way to work. While potholes are annoying and can potentially damage vehicles, Anthony Prinz said there’s more to maintaining a road than the blacktop. “Street maintenance really isn’t just about the pavement,” Prinz said. “It’s about the whole system.” Easy access: Prinz is the director of Jacksonville Transportation Services and said the city regularly gets calls about the upkeep in the roads, but they also receive calls from commercial realtors asking about the traffic counts in certain areas and drivers wanting the city’s stoplights to work more effectively so they’re not hitting every red light in town, Prinz said.
