Maintenance of bikeways is handled by four agencies. The lists below are a guide which will assist you in reporting a maintenance concern. If you see a problem, please call one of the phone numbers below. Government agencies rely on the public to flag bicycle-related maintenance problems.
Within reason, you are encouraged to report any maintenance task that affects your safety or convenience. This may include items such as pothole repair, debris pick-up, overgrown brush, problems with sewer grates, snow and ice removal, etc.
