Residential Road Patch and Repair

Residential Road Patch and Repair Program

The 2018 Residential Road Patch and Repair, commonly known as Mill/Fill, program should be posted sometime in March 2018.

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.
