Did your street make the cut for 2013?
The Oakale city council approved the streets for next year's street reconstruction and overlay project. The annual reconstruction and overlay project is part of the city's Capital Improvement Program.
City staff choose the streets based on some of the lowest overall pavement conditions. Most of the streets chosen for 2013 were constructed more than 22 years ago, which also factored into the decision.
Thirty-nine neighborhoods will have street work done in 2013. The city will host neighborhood meetings in November, hearings in January and send for bids in April.
While most of the streets are following the plan in the CIP, the city made some adjustments based on some of streets' quality.
The Sun Meadows neighborhood was supposed to receive work at a later year, but city staff requested the project be included in next year's program due to the low pavement ratings and rapid deterioration.
Likewise, the Diamond Ridge area was postponed due to better quality than the Sun Meadows area.
The city has 92 local miles (not including Washington County roads) and has reconstructed or overlaid one-third of the city in the last 15 years. Next year the city will complete about four miles.
See the attachment to see which streets will receive work in 2013.
