Resurfacing with Utilities
These projects are streets with curb and gutter that is generally in good condition, but have poor pavements. The projects include spot replacement of curb and gutter where needed. The existing pavement is milled or pulverized and a new layer of asphalt is placed. Sidewalks in poor condition are also replaced as needed.
They also include the replacement of at least one underground utility with the possibility of more. The City underground utilities include sanitary sewer, water and storm sewer.
All City streets are rated every two years and the pavement rating is used to help determine which streets are placed on the list.
The following items influence the scheduling of any specific area:
- Very poor pavements
- Storm sewer flooding, ponding and pavement icing issues
- Failing water mains (numerous water main breaks)
- Failing sanitary sewer (cracked pipes, sewage backups)
- Traffic volumes
- Need for improved pedestrian or bicycle facilities
