Road Repair Section
The Road Repair Section is responsible for road patching, road crack sealing, and City sidewalk repair.Each of these responsibilities is only done on City owned roads.  If you have any questions please call (505) 891-7224.

Road Crack Sealing:
  • You can request to have the cracks in your road fixed by submitting a service request in our Report Rio Rancho application or by calling (505) 891-7224.Cracks and potholes fall under pavement maintenance.Cracks can be fixed in two ways: crack sealing and crack patching.

  • Crack sealing is a stopgap measure to prolong pavement life by minimizing water infiltration into the base course or subgrade.Crack sealing may be used on all asphalt pavements and only in cracks that are less than or equal to two (2) inches wide.Crack sealing should be finished before Preventative Maintenance is completed.


Road (Crack) Patching:
  • Crack patching is a stopgap measure to prolong pavement life by minimizing water infiltration into the base course or subgrade. Crack patching may be used on all asphalt pavements and only in cracks that are greater than two (2) inches wide. Crack patching should be finished before Preventative Maintenance is completed.


Pavement Maintenance Information:
  • There are two different types of pavement maintenance. These types are microsurfacing, and mill and inlay. It is important to note that pavement maintenance is done to extend the life of the existing pavement and improve driving surfaces. It is only after the pavement’s life is near the end that a full reconstruction, completely repaving the road, will take place.

  • Microsurfacing is not new pavement but a surface treatment that extends the longevity of roads by three (3) to five (5) years. This method helps protect the road from further weather deterioration. Please note that preexisting cracks will return over time.

  • Mill and inlay is a method where approximately one and a half (1.5) to two and a half (2.5) inches of the existing asphalt is removed and then replaced.


Report Rio Rancho:

Report Rio Rancho is an intuitive online application that allows residents and businesses of Rio Rancho to identify quality of life and environmental issues; and report them to the appropriate department in the City for resolution.  The application is powered by CitySourced and uses specified location of the issue to help with the reporting process for residents, businesses, and City staff.
