Street Maintenance

The Town of Wendell performs routine street maintenance, such as pothole patching, drainage and sweeping, on a routine basis, weather permitting. Most neighborhood and minor collector streets within the Town’s corporate limits are maintained by town staff while most commercial routes and thoroughfares are maintained by the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT).

Potholes, storm drainage back-ups, and similar needed repairs to town streets can be reported to the Public Works staff at 919-365-3616 or by email at

The Town of Wendell has a multi-year list of streets in need of resurfacing. Pending the availability of funding and budget adoption by the Board of Commissioners, the Town performs resurfacing and related improvements such as sidewalk installation or replacement, curb and gutter installation or repair, annually.
