The Public Works Department takes the condition of the brick pavement into consideration when determining the importance of retaining the brick street.
All brick streets in Rock Island are included in one of the following categories:
Streets that are determined to be of such historic importance that they should be restored to their original condition by replacing any existing patches with brick. Any new utility cuts must be patched with brick.
Streets that are important enough to merit preservation but not restoration. Any new utility cuts must be patched with brick.
