Streets and Sidewalks
Sidewalk and Curb Installation:
Requirements governing streets and sidewalks can be found in the City Code Section 12, and in DPW-published "Specifications for Highways Covering Residential and Industrial Developments.
The City of Cranston maintains an elaborate Street Lighting Program. The majority of streets are more than adequately lighted. However, if a resident would like to request the installation of a streetlight, then he/she must notify the Constituent Affairs Office at (401) 461 - 1000, extension 3123, with the pole number and the street name. All requests will be evaluated on an individual basis. Additionally, if any resident has a problem with existing street lights, repair service can be requested by reporting the problem directly to National Grid. On the web, go to https://www1.nationalgridus.com/Streetlight
By phone please call National Grid at (800) 322-3223."
Street Paving and Repairing:
Historically, the city has spent close to $500,000.00 per year paving and repairing city streets. The Department of Public Works welcomes resident input regarding conditions of roads and need for repairs. All requests are given proper attention and consideration when the yearly work list is being compiled.
