First Streets Completed Under Street Preventative Maintenance Program
The City of Corpus Christi completed the first streets for maintenance work this week as part of the Street Preventative Maintenance Program.
The project started in February on Baldwin Boulevard near Morgan Avenue with repairs to curb and gutter, driveways, and ADA ramps. After those are complete, maintenance of the street, via an asphalt overlay, will start. Repairs are done in this order to prevent cutting new asphalt to replace sidewalks, curbs and gutters.
Sabinas Street also has been completed and work has begun on Nineteenth, Niagara and Buford streets.
City Council approved the maintenance program in July as the first part of a citywide Street Improvement Plan. The program provides maintenance to streets in good condition. The goal of preventative maintenance is to preserve streets and must be done regularly to work.
The streets selected for the maintenance program were based on a scoring system using the pavement condition index, a method of measuring the condition of a road through indicators such as cracking in the street pavement, potholes, weathering and patching.
