2016 Neighborhood Road Program

Background

Example of Repaired Neighborhood Road
Example of rehabilitated street using discrete panel replacements and partial depth joint repair.

For several years, the City Council has made it a primary goal to invest annually in neighborhood streets to maintain the city’s local road network. To implement this goal, the City selects several residential streets to be addressed based on an evaluation of the pavement condition using PASER ratings, field observations by staff, and resident concerns. Please refer to the Pavement Condition Asset Management web page for additional information on PASER ratings and Asset Management.

The 2016 Neighborhood Road Program will implement the City’s Asset Management approach for pavements that was established in 2009 and is explained in detail at the above link. The asset management program stresses the importance of using preventative maintenance to preserve good quality roads using low-cost rehabilitation techniques, rather than allowing the roads to deteriorate to a point that requires reconstruction involving much more effort at a higher cost. Roads that have deteriorated significantly are addressed with rehabilitation methods such as overlays, panel replacements, and joint repairs to allow more efficient application of available road funds to maximize the number of neighborhood streets that can be included each year in the program.

Program Details

The 2016 Neighborhood Road Program will include the rehabilitation of the roads listed below. Repair techniques to be implemented include:

  • partial-depth mill and overlay of asphalt
  • concrete panel replacement (discrete replacement of single or multiple concrete slabs)
  • joint repair (removal and replacement of failed concrete joints)
  • full-depth and partial-depth reconstruction
  • sealing cracks and joints to preserve the pavement
  • Use of pavement interlayers to help resist reflective cracking

The map below shows the streets that are being designed for completion in 2016.
2016 Neighborhood Road Construction Projects

Construction is anticipated to begin summer 2016 and would be completed by fall 2016.

For further information about this year’s project please contact George Melistas, Engineering Senior Manager, Department of Public Services at 248-735-5632.
