Pavement Rehabilitation Program

The entire road network is inspected on a three-year cycle and each road is analyzed and rated. Roads selected for rehabilitation are those where the surface is rutted, cracked, and generally in poor driving condition but without major structural defects. Annually, the City selects approximately 135,000 square meters of poorly-rated streets for our Pavement Rehabilitation Program. This work includes repairing drainage issues along concrete curb and gutters, milling asphalt off the surface, and then laying down asphalt concrete pavement. Some sections of road may be required to be sub cut and additional asphalt placed to strengthen the area. Roadways with relatively thin surface asphalt may be taken down to exposed granular layer, reshaped and prepared for placement of the new asphalt pavement.

Before replacing the top layer of asphalt, concrete curbs and gutters are repaired along with the sidewalks. Additional work includes adjusting the elevation of valves and manholes, replacing traffic detector loops, surface drainage swales and installing new lane markings. A few asphalt back alleys and parking lots are also selected each year for rehab work.
