Citywide Biennial Slurry Seal 2018/19 (CIP 8262)
Slurry seal maintenance prolongs the life of existing street surfaces and helps minimize costly repairs and reconstruction later as the asphalt pavement degrades. This project placed asphalt slurry over existing paved roads in specific zones, rotating around the City and added a new surface to streets that have been reconstructed over the past several years. The slurry seal will also help prevent cracking of the existing paved surface. The project locations are identified by the City’s Pavement Management System. The work was primarily performed on residential streets. The project began in fall, 2018 and was completed in early 2019. List of street in Zone 1 and Zone 3.
Citywide Biennial Street Rehabilitation 2019 (CIP 8225)
Resurfacing streets with a new layer of asphalt concrete renews the existing street surface and helps reduce more costly repairs and reconstruction later, if the asphalt pavement were left to degrade. This project will place a new layer of asphalt concrete over existing paved roads in specific zones, rotating around the City. Curb ramps will also be installed or replaced to meet current ADA standards and make the sidewalks accessible to residents with mobility limitations. The project locations are identified by the City’s Pavement Management System. The work will primarily be performed on residential streets. The project is scheduled to begin in fall, 2019 and is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year.
