Street Resurfacing

SRThe DPW resurfacing program maintains approximately ninety-five (95) miles of “non-connector” streets while funding for the Town's "major connector" streets are addressed as individual capital projects when reconstruction is required.  

The DPW follows a preventative maintenance strategy which slows the deterioration rate of pavement, extends service life and delays cost and disruption of full reconstruction almost indefinitely.  We use chip-seal, Cape Seal and standard hot mix asphalt overlay, or grinding and overlay of the existing road surface in a 10-14 year cycle. Chip-seal is used as an economical treatment where appropriate and grinding is used where there will be a loss of existing curb reveal and/or puddling will occur in driveways or intersecting streets due to an additional overlay.

The DPW targets approximately 10 miles of street from an ongoing evaluation program. This is the optimum amount to minimize repair costs and preserve the roadway system.  The number and mileage of streets is dependent on the combination of treatment types implemented.  The list of streets to be resurfaced are included in a multi-year paving plan with the first year being finalized after post-winter road condition inspections are completed each spring.   * All noted streets are subject to change due to unexpected changes in road condition, utility projects and funding.
