Program overview

Concrete streets deteriorate over time as water and salt enter joints and cracks.

Factors that worsen conditions:

  • Poor drainage
  • Underlying soil conditions
  • Higher traffic volumes

The Concrete Streets Rehabilitation program extends the life of concrete streets throughout the city.

We target concrete streets for which a proper repair will:

  1. prolong the street’s life and
  2. improve ride quality and neighborhood livability.

Repairing concrete generally consists of:

  • Saw cutting
  • Removing and replacing deteriorated concrete joints
  • Other pavement distresses

We also replace concrete panels that we cannot salvage.

Other updates we may make:

  • Upgrade select pedestrian ramps
  • Replace select curbs and gutters
  • Resurface the street pavement with a diamond grind

Any of these tasks will likely require us to replace less than 25 percent of the pavement. Along with the street work, we’ll make improvements to gas, water and sewer utilities.
