Unimproved Road Video:


West Des Moines Public Services performs most of all maintenance on non surfaced (gravel) roads within the City corporate limits.

Public Services does a driving inspection of all rural roads on a weekly schedule. Maintenance is determined by the condition of the road on an as needed basis.

Dust control is generally done two times a year. The first application is done after the Spring rains have subsided, usually late May through mid June. The second application is typically applied in late Summer around mid to late August.  

 Please contact Public Services with any concerns regarding
rural road maintenance at 515.222.3480
