[ARCHIVED] Street rehabilitation program begins Monday, 9/25

The program consists of milling and asphalt resurfacing (listed as M&S, Mill and Surface, on the list and M&O, Mill and Overlay on the schedule) on some streets, while other streets require complete reconstruction to provide for an adequate base and proper drainage. When a street is rehabilitated, any deteriorated adjacent sections of concrete curb, gutter, accessibility ramps and sidewalk are replaced prior to the resurfacing or reconstruction of the street. 

Public Works staff surveyed the streets of the City to develop the attached list. Various types of pavement distress, such as reflective cracking, alligator cracking, rutting, utility cuts and joint failure were observed. The streets were inspected to determine the degree and type of deterioration and work required to restore them to acceptable conditions, including concrete rehabilitation adjacent to the pavement and drainage improvements. 

While we found that many of the streets in the City require some degree of rehabilitation, we concentrated on those streets in the worst condition and/or with high volumes of daily traffic. The streets included on the attached list have been determined to meet one or both of these criteria. In addition, the prepared list includes two alternate groups considered once funding was determined to be available. Council Memo and Resolution
