Concrete Street Slab Replacement
This program replaces failed concrete street pavement slabs and curbing at various locations throughout the city. This work is performed by outside contractors and Public Works staff. Slab replacement work done by city staff is ongoing throughout the year and addresses isolated and unforeseen slab failures and deterioration.
A contract has been awarded for this year’s slab replacement project. Work is scheduled to begin in August 2018.
Asphalt Street Resurfacing Program
This program generally resurfaces deteriorated asphalt paved streets by removing the top 2 inches of the pavement by a milling process and placing a new hot mix asphalt wearing surface. For asphalt paved streets with concrete curb and gutter, curb and gutter sections in failing condition are removed and replaced during an asphalt resurfacing project.
Bids are currently being solicited for the resurfacing of Joyce Ann Drive with the work to be done this fall.
Work performed in this program includes deteriorated slab replacement, slab leveling to reduce tripping hazards and ponding water, and the replacement or new construction of curb ramps at street intersections. All sidewalk work is done to upgrade the City’s sidewalks into compliance with current accessibility standards. Curb ramp improvements are currently being constructed in conjunction with street improvement projects that affect intersections where sidewalks are located.
Bid documents for the contracted slab mudjacking project are currently being prepared for work to be done this fall and early winter. Public Works staff will be replacing deteriorated slabs at various locations around the city throughout the year.
