Parking was restricted on my street before concrete work was done; now the curb is no longer painted. Why?

The contractor and the inspector are responsible for making sure all signs and painting are replaced when the job is completed. Please contact the 311 Call Center to report the missing restriction markings. In order to send the information to the correct Division, it will be necessary to tell the Call Center when the work was done.
