2015 Neighborhood Roads Program

Background

Example of Repaired Neighborhood Road
Example of rehabilitated street using discrete panel replacements and partial depth joint repair.

For several years, the City Council has made it a primary goal to invest annually in neighborhood streets to maintain the city’s local road network. To implement this goal, the City selects several residential streets to be addressed based on an evaluation of the pavement condition using PASER ratings, field observations by staff, and resident concerns. Please refer to the Pavement Condition Asset Management web page for additional information on PASER ratings and Asset Management.

The 2015 Neighborhood Road Program will implement the City’s Asset Management approach for pavements that was established in 2009 and is explained in detail at the above link. The asset management program stresses the importance of using preventative maintenance to preserve good quality roads using low-cost rehabilitation techniques, rather than allowing the roads to deteriorate to a point that requires reconstruction involving much more effort at a higher cost. Roads that have deteriorated significantly are addressed with rehabilitation methods such as overlays, panel replacements, and joint repairs to allow more efficient application of available road funds to maximize the number of neighborhood streets that can be included each year in the program.

Program Details

The 2015 Neighborhood Road Program will include the rehabilitation of the roads listed in the table below. Repair techniques to be implemented include:

  • partial-depth mill and overlay of asphalt
  • concrete panel replacement (discrete replacement of single or multiple concrete slabs)
  • joint repair (removal and replacement of failed concrete joints)
  • full-depth and partial-depth reconstruction
  • sealing cracks and joints to preserve the pavement
  • Use of pavement interlayers to help resist reflective cracking

The map below shows the streets that are being designed for completion in 2015.

Local Street Listing

December 9-15, 2015 Update (last update for the season)

Additional Asphalt & Concrete Streets – a final listing of these street segments and their current construction status can be found in the table below. ** Work on Quince Drive and Tamara Drive west of Quince will be deferred until June 2016 because it is not possible to do the work now without risking public safety. Higher than anticipated bus and parent traffic volumes to and from Orchard Hills Elementary make doing this work during the school year a safety hazard. In addition, selected areas on both streets require excavation of poor soils beneath the road bed, which requires several good weather days to complete and fill before paving work could commence. Instead, the City’s plan is to complete this work in June 2016 once school is out for the year.

***Work on Sudbury and Trent Courts, in the Chase Farms Subdivision will also need to be postponed until May or June of 2016, due to below normal temperatures for placing new concrete.
