The City of South Bend announces the launch of its 2023 paving season. Now in the third year of its Rebuilding Our Streets Plan, the City plans to pave more than 80 streets during its first phase of paving. More than 30 streets are expected to be announced at a later date as part of the second phase of work. The City is bidding out paving work in multiple phases to ensure contractors have the capacity to complete it this season, which kicks off in May and typically lasts until early November.


As in past years, other streets in the city will see preventative maintenance measures such as crack sealing and microsurfacing throughout the season. Residents can follow the progress of paving work at


Crews will begin paving this week. Once crews begin work on a street, it will take approximately three to five days to complete paving. Streets must be milled and prepped prior to paving and will be closed during working hours (7 am – 6 pm). Signage will be posted prior to the start of construction so residents and businesses are aware of the upcoming work.


Motorists should expect delays and possibly detours when a street is being paved. In construction zones, motorists are encouraged to slow down, use alternate routes and be mindful of workers.


The Rebuilding Our Streets Plan is a multi-year strategy to fix streets that have failed and to determine ways to maintain them in good condition over time. To date, the City has invested $26.9 million in street related work, which includes paving, reconstructing, brick spot repair, crack sealing and other maintenance activities. The plan, along with a list of streets to be addressed and their PASER scores, can be found at
