Residential Road Patch and Repair

Residential Road Patch and Repair Program

This process is a more permanent fix for use on residential roadways that are plagued with dips, cracks and potholes, but do not receive heavy truck traffic.  The road is first milled to a depth of about 1 ½ inches, the debris is removed, and the street is swept.  Next, a paving crew lays hot asphalt and rolls it to produce a smooth driving surface.  This process is a much less expensive alternative to full street replacement. This process will extend the life of the street, resulting in a smoother ride.

How are streets selected for repair?  Inspection crews drive each district to rate the condition of each street.  Each street is then measured for repair and quantities are calculated.  A list is then generated for each council district’s review and approval.  Additionally, the list is also reviewed by other divisions  to ensure the chosen streets are not scheduled for other major roadwork/repairs.

 The Program runs from April through September, and the streets are scheduled according to council district.  This year, the council districts are being repaired in the following order:  District 6, District 5, District 1, District 4, District 2 and District 3.  The order is based on the amount of roadway preparation required in each district. 

 Please click  on your district to see a map of what streets have been scheduled for repair this year.  Currently we are 100% complete in District 6, 5, 1, 4, and 2.  District 3 will be completed when the mill machine is back in service.  

While the equipment is out of service, the crews have been diverted to a two week pilot surface treatment program on 10 miles of unimproved streets.
