Streets & Sidewalks

Streets & Highways Section
The Town of Bel Air Department of Public Works Streets and Highways section provides road maintenance and snow removal services for approximately 47 miles of roads in the town boundaries.

The Department of Public Works administrative staff receives requests for a variety of services directly from our town citizens. These are usually to report pot holes and damaged road surfaces, debris in roadways, drainage problems along roadways or town rights-of-way, missing or damaged manhole covers, or overhanging trees & bushes along roadways and at intersections that cause sight distance problems.
