When are road restrictions in effect?
Please consider the road restrictions when planning your spring construction project.  During the spring thaw, heavy vehicles can damage streets.  To prevent this costly damage, the City of Lexington restricts the amount of weight allowed on streets during the critical period.

In general, spring load restrictions begin in late February to mid-March and are lifted around mid-May.  However, this timeframe is based on weather conditions and varies each year.  Please plan your projects around these restrictions.

When will my street be plowed?
Our first priority is to clear the main thoroughfares to enable emergency vehicles access into and out of our city.  Once they have been cleared, our crews begin clearing less traveled streets and cul-de-sacs.

Who do I call to report a sewage back-up?
Residents experiencing sewer back-ups should call 763-784-6849 (After hours, call the Centennial Lakes Police Department at their dispatch non-emergency number at 763-784-2501.  They will then contact our "on-call" staff. ).  Our Public Works Department will determine if the sewer blockage is in the public sewer main or in the private sewer lines.  Blockages in private sewer lines are the responsibility of the property owner.

Who do I contact with questions on my sewer/water bill?
First, visit our utility billing webpage which provides many answers to questions on billing statements.  If your questions still are not answered, then contact Lexington City Hall.

Who provides gas and/or electricity to my home?
