Overlays

  • Mills, paves and sealcoats selected city streets with new bituminous overlays.
  • Designed to preserve and protect the pavement, with a goal of reaching a 50-year life expectancy before a street requires complete reconstruction.
  • Work typically begins in early June and completed by the end of August.

2018 PROJECT AREA:

  • Project areas marked on map (below)

Pavement Reclamation

  • Grinds up the existing bituminous pavement and mixes with the existing base before repaving the road.
  • Used mainly for roadways without curbs and nearly as successful as a full reconstruction at a third of the cost.
  • Work begins in early June and completed by the end of August.
