Pavement repairs coming to city streets
ANNUAL PAVEMENT MAINTENANCE PROGRAM EXTENDS THE LIFE OF ROADS
Commuters will soon notice improvements to a number of heavily-used streets thanks to the city’s annual pavement maintenance and management program, which is built around making the right repair on the right road at the right time.
“Maintaining streets is crucial to providing a quality transportation network for residents and businesses in the city,” said Maria D’Andrea, public works director. “Our program is designed to make sure that roads in all areas of the city are addressed on a rotating schedule. By evaluating the pavement condition, traffic volume and type of each roadway in a given area, we can prioritize the roads that are in the greatest need of improvement so our limited maintenance dollars can have the most impact.”
In September and October, drivers can expect to see resurfacing efforts on Chambers Road (from E. 104th to E. 120th avenues and at the intersection with E. 100th Avenue), E. 56th Avenue (between I-270 and Brighton Boulevard), E. 64th Avenue (from Quebec Parkway to Kearney Street) and E. 68th Avenue (from Brighton Boulevard to Colorado Boulevard). These roads will all remain open during construction, but drivers should expect lane closures, areas of rough pavement and potential traffic delays. Residents and businesses may also encounter temporary driveway obstructions during work periods.
Additional improvements will take place on select stretches of E. 104th Avenue and Quebec Parkway, where damaged concrete panels will be repaired or replaced as needed. Traffic impacts on these roadways should be minimal.
Some street resurfacing has already been completed in the Adams Heights neighborhood, on E. 56th and E. 60th avenues, and in the Victory Crossing area. A series of concrete sidewalks, curb ramps and curb and gutter structures around the city have also been repaired in addition to the road work being completed this summer.
