2018 Road Resurfacing Projects:
Mayor Frank G. Jackson’s enhanced budget, made possible by Issue 32, allows the City to embark on more street improvement projects in 2017 and 2018 than previous years. Projects span all City neighborhoods and wards. Highlights about this year’s road work:
- Street resurfacing began April 16 and will continue through the summer. The first resurfacing project was in Ward 7 on East 89th Street near the intersection of Hough Avenue.
- Potholes are serviced year round, weather permitting. The Department of Public Works has increased its pothole crews from eight to an average of 10 crews daily as a result of the passage of Issue 32.
- With the completion of the Pavement Management Study in 2017, the City has a graded system that allows streets in the greatest need of resurfacing to be selected for repair. The City is using the ‘worst first’ approach to road resurfacing.
- The City projects it will resurface 120 proposed streets in 2018.
- The City is also investing in preventive maintenance on recently resurfaced streets to extend roadways’ high condition rating using the crack seal program.
