Street Rehabilitation Program
The City’s annual Street Rehabilitation Program contracts with private sector contractors for replacement of broken curbs and sidewalks, preventive maintenance such as crack sealing, chip sealing and pavement overlay and reconstruction. With over 325 centerline miles of paved streets, it is critical that the City maintain its streets to provide a safe and efficient transportation system. It should be noted that this project has been made possible through use of the City's ¾ cent Street Fund Sale and Use Tax.
Street projects for the Street Rehabilitation Program are selected based on system-wide needs and priorities. If your street has been selected for rehabilitation, you will receive a project notification letter. Those priorities are established after examining many factors including the pavement condition, traffic volumes, and coordination with other utility projects. This year’s program includes 211,000 square yards of rehabilitation.
Street rehabilitation is generally a two stage process, beginning with concrete repairs of damaged curb, gutter and sidewalk and other related concrete work. After the concrete repairs are completed, rehabilitation of the street continues with either a resurfacing project or total reconstruction. As rehabilitation work approaches, door hangers will be used to help inform you of the upcoming construction activities.
