South Bend: Rebuilding Our Streets Plan Implementation Begins

April 22, 2021

On Monday, April 26, the City of South Bend will begin implementing its recently announced Rebuilding Our Streets Plan, a 3-year, $25 million investment to improve the condition of local streets. The first year of the Plan involves work on 135 lane miles of streets. Over 115 streets are scheduled this year for work such as milling and asphalt resurfacing, full reconstruction or brick spot repair. Additional streets will see preventative maintenance measures such as crack sealing and microsurfacing. Residents can follow the progress of paving work at

"We're thrilled to be able to make improvements to so many street segments this year, and thank the Common Council for making the necessary funding available," said Mayor James Mueller. "Our 3-year plan will improve the overall quality of our streets across the city and in every neighborhood."

Work will be completed by both City and contractor crews. Once the paving crews begin work, it will take approximately three to five days to complete each segment of street on this list. Streets must be milled and prepped prior to paving and will be closed during working operations (6:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.). Signage will be posted prior to the start of work so residents and businesses are aware of the upcoming work.

The Rebuilding Our Streets Plan is a 10-year strategy on how the City can address the conditions of local, neighborhood streets and find additional resources to maintain streets in good condition over a longer period. The first three years will focus on streets in worst condition based on the Pavement Surface Evaluation and Rating (PASER) score. PASER assigns a rating from 1 to 10, with 1 being the worst condition and 10 being a newly paved street. The plan, along with a list of streets to be addressed and their PASER scores, can be found at

The City's 2021 paving list is included below. Note: Streets listed with an * next to them are tentatively scheduled pending the outcome of an application for the 2021 Community Crossing Matching Grant through the State of Indiana. At the time of this release, the State has not announced the results of the first round of applications.
