Public Works



The Town of River Bend maintains 16.48 miles of paved streets within our corporate limits. Our workers do minor pothole repair, mow the roadsides, and work to maintain the street and traffic control signs.


Our contracted engineer prepares a Roadway Evaluation Survey that details the paving needs of our streets. Using this information we allocate our state funding (and local funding as needed) to contract to have paving and marking done each year. The benefit of having the annual review is that the roads that need the most attention are paved first. Click on the link to the left for the more information, including a list, in priority order, of our roadway improvement plans.


Stormwater Management

The Department of Public Works also maintains a system of culverts, open swales, and other facilities designed to ensure that stormwater is moved through town efficiently. Stormwater ponds at the front entrance to Town and near Ritter Field are designed to increase stormwater storage and improve water quality by allowing contaminants to settle before the water makes it way to the receiving stream. The Ritter Field pond was a joint project between the Town and North Carolina State University as a demonstration of stormwater best management practice.


The Public Works Advisory Board evaluated several stormwater improvement projects and provided the Town Council with a list of projects to contemplate as funding becomes available.

    The Town of River Bend is responsible for the maintenance and repair of public roads within the Corporate Limits of the Town. It is the Town’s desire to utilize our limited resources for roadway

    maintenance in a responsible manner, addressing maintenance and repair needs on a prioritized basis that will result in the best long-term performance of  the roadway system. In order to accomplish this  objective, an assessment of roadway conditions and  maintenance priorities is needed.

    To that end, the Town contracted with Avolis  Engineering, P.A. to perform such an assessment in  2007 as an update to similar work this firm  completed in 2003. Engineers inspected all public

    roads and documented the repair needs and traffic  loads on each in order to prioritize each roadway in  the maintenance plan. The list below shows the  result of the 2007 study (less the roadway done in  2007).
