Annually, Engineering evaluates the surface condition of all City maintained streets to identify and prioritize roads that need maintenance. In addition, the street resurfacing program must also be kept within the constraints of the City’s established budget for this program.
Once a fiscally responsible program has been developed, the program is put out for competitive bid. The program is usually developed over the winter, with bidding in the early spring and construction occurring in early to midsummer.
Once a road has been resurfaced, the surface is expected to have a life of about twenty years. However, there are several variables that can affect the life expectancy of a road, including amount of traffic that drives on it, the type of soil beneath the road, and weather conditions.
