Pavement Rehabilitation/Resurfacing
The Streets Division sets priorities for street repaving based on such factors as traffic volume, drainage problems, oxidation (weather wear), deterioration, and failures of the pavement base. The City street system is continually surveyed to develop a list of candidate streets. The list is coordinated with various City and private agencies to ensure no conflicting construction plans exist for the streets. Once any conflicts are resolved, priorities are set for repaving as funding becomes available.
