WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ROADS WITHIN THE CITY?
The responsibility for constructing and maintaining city roads falls under one of these jurisdictions:
- STATE - Interstates and trunk highways
- COUNTY - Most of the minor arterials and some of the collector roadways with in the city
- CITY OR TOWNSHIP - Any public roadways that are not under the jurisdiction of the state or county. These are generally residential streets and some collector roadways
- PRIVATE - Roads constructed and maintained by adjacent residents or businesses
Although the city does not have direct responsibility for state and county roads within their boundaries, the city is usually involved in the planning, design, construction, and partial financing of these roads because of the impact on residents and other infrastructure.
