Street Paving & Sidewalk Repair Schedules

Pavement Condition Assessment


Every 4 years, the Department of Public Works assesses the condition of all City owned and maintained streets using an independent paving consultant. After the condition assessment is completed, each street segment is assigned a value for "Remaining Service Life", which indicates how soon the street segment should be resurfaced. Unfortunately, there are always more streets requiring resurfacing than funding available to address them.

Prioritizing Process


The Department of Public Works considers a number of factors when determining the highest priority streets for resurfacing. The two most important factors are the "Remaining Service Life" and the traffic volume (average daily traffic) of the street. To maximize the benefits of the paving program, the City prioritizes the streets with the lowest remaining service life and the highest average daily traffic. The City then takes into account the recently completed work and the plans for future work, including both municipal and utility work. Finally, the City attempts to geographically group streets in need of repair. Each year's list is finalized, pending budget approvals.

Projected Maintenance List


The following 3-Year Paving Schedule lists the streets that have been identified for repair in 2015, 2016, and 2017.

Sidewalk Condition Assessment


Every four years, the Department of Public Works assesses the condition of all City owned and maintained sidewalks using an independent sidewalk consultant. After the condition assessment is completed, each sidewalk segment is assigned a value for "Remaining Service Life", which indicates how soon the sidewalk segment should be replaced or repaired. Unfortunately, there are always more sidewalks requiring replacement or repair than funding available to address them.

Prioritizing Process


The Department of Public Works considers a number of factors when determining the highest priority sidewalks for replacement or repair. The two most important factors are the "Remaining Service Life" and the pedestrian volume, based on proximity to shopping centers, tourist destinations, schools, churches, government buildings and other areas of interest. To maximize the benefits of the sidewalk replacement program, the City prioritizes the sidewalks with the lowest remaining service life and the highest expected pedestrian volume. The City then takes into account the recently completed work and the plans for future work, including both municipal and utility work. Finally, the City attempts to geographically group sidewalks in need of replacement or repair. Each year's list is finalized, pending budget approvals.

Projected Maintenance List


The City is working on developing the Sidewalk replacement or repair schedule for 2016-2017. Sidewalk work is anticipated to resume early Spring 2017.
