How was the type of construction for each project determined?

A citywide evaluation of roadway conditions was performed in which city roads were ranked according to relative condition.  Evaluation parameters included roughness of pavement, cracking and pothole severity, depth of pavement and base and drainage deficiencies.  Road segments were assigned a pavement condition index number (PCI) on a scale of 0 to 100 representing worst and best conditions respectively.  Roadway projects were prioritized on that basis with an eye toward addressing the worst rated segments in early years.  Utility master plans were also a factor in prioritizing projects.

When will construction be complete?

Generally, construction projects will be complete within a year depending on the scope of the work.  As contracts are awarded with specific time frames, schedules will be posted on the Master Plan page and updated regularly.

What are the hours for construction? Will there be work during the weekends?

Normal work hours are 8 AM to 5 PM Monday through Friday in accordance with City noise ordinances.  If there is a need for weekend work, that will require prior City approval and residents will be notified in advance.

Who is responsible for designing all the projects?

A consulting engineering firm has been retained for each of the four Commission Districts in the City.  Design and construction oversight of each project will be the responsibility of the district engineer.  A list of District engineering firms can be found at the bottom of the About the Program page.

What are the colored paint marks on my fence, driveway, steps, trees, etc.?

The paint marks are for the surveyors to mark where they took elevation shots in preparation of the engineering plans for the future construction work.

Do the paint marks wash off or are they permanent?

The paint marks should fade away over time, usually about 2 to 3 months.

If the paint marks do not wash off, will the City have them cleaned up?

Yes. Please contact us if the paint marks have not faded away and we’ll address accordingly.

What are all the paint marks in the streets?

These are paint marks that are placed by surveyors and utility locators as part of the design process for the roadway construction work.

What if my street isn’t included on the Neighborhood Road Program?

The Neighborhood Road Program is funded through a general obligation bond issue intended to expedite repairs of City roadways in worst condition. The Public Services Streets Division operating and maintenance (O&M) budgets are being increased each year over the next five years to keep pace with required maintenance work for the balance of roadways throughout the City. In accordance with the Roadway Master Plan Study update that was completed in 2016, the City is striving to achieve the annual budget recommendations necessary to repair and maintain those roads that are not in the program, along with the curbing, sidewalks, signage, and striping..
