Residential Street Rebuilt Project Begins Construction on 7 Streets & Seeks Public Input
AUGUST 3, 2020
The Residential Street Rebuild Program (RSRP) is under development and will address the City's residential streets in poor condition. Two methods of pavement rebuild work are expected: rehabilitation and reconstruction.
Rehabilitation is performed on streets that are in poor condition, but the base material under the pavement is in pretty good shape. This option is used to stretch construction dollars further by recycling some of the existing base and/or pavement, doing only a small amount of concrete work, and minimizing the amount of underground utility work that is done.
Reconstruction is performed on streets for which both the pavement and base material is unusable and the pavement structure has failed. With reconstruction, the entire street (pavement and base) is removed and replaced. Typically, there is some limited replacement of curb & gutter, sidewalks, and driveway aprons (entrances). A limited amount of underground utility work may be done as well.
