(May 3, 2019)

Dozens of major and residential road resurfacing projects are planned for the 2019 construction season. 

There are 69 project locations expected to be completed this year. The City Council approved two resurfacing contracts this week estimated at $9.6 million, a portion of the total 2019 resurfacing budget of $12.3 million.

“Street repair and maintenance is one of our top priorities and we continue to make significant annual investments in our roads,” said Mayor Jean Stothert. “The resurfacing program addresses roads that have not been repaired for decades.  We will continue to look for ways to increase funding for street repair to provide safe roads throughout the city.” 

Since 2013, Mayor Stothert has approved $84.5 million in asphalt resurfacing and concrete panel repair.

Pavement Rehabilitation Programs 2012-2018

Resurfacing projects are selected each year based on traffic volume, history of maintenance and related costs, current or upcoming utility work and the condition of the street using the PASER (Pavement Surface Evaluation and Rating) rating system.  PASER is a national average developed by the University of Wisconsin-Madison Transportation Information Center.  PASER uses a 1-10 scale to rate the street condition, 1=Failed, 10+Excellent

In addition, several resurfacing projects funded in 2018 but delayed due to winter weather are underway now at these locations:  

Ed Creighton:  32nd Avenue to I-480

Grover Street:  96th - 102nd

105th & Hascall area

152nd Avenue:  Stony Brook - 156th

The resurfacing program is in addition to pothole repairs which continue throughout the city. “This will result in multiple road construction projects at one time causing temporary lane closures and detours.  Please drive cautiously,” said Mayor Stothert.

The weekly summary of pothole repairs shows more than 1,000 tons of asphalt were used this week to repair more than 7,000 potholes.

*This includes every reported location, even locations reported multiple times, so the actual number is lower.

The repair estimate is based on the amount of asphalt used and the average size of repaired potholes (3’ x 3’ x 8” deep).  We are using this estimate because pothole reports are bundled into work orders for scheduled repairs.  A work order can be one pothole or a street with multiple potholes, so this estimate is the most accurate number.

During the week April 26-May 3, we worked at these locations repairing potholes with asphalt.  Work at some locations is ongoing.
