Completing the Right Repair on the Right Road at the Right Time

When it comes to maintaining roads, Commerce City is committed to making the right repair on the right road at the right time. That’s why the city uses a comprehensive pavement maintenance and management plan that follows a sensible schedule for taking care of roadways.

Types of Road Maintenance

Criteria used to determine road repairs in the city include factors such as: pavement condition, traffic volume and roadway type. Once the roads are evaluated based on these factors, the appropriate type of maintenance is determined.

  • Routine maintenance – cyclical, planned maintenance to extend the life of the road.
    Examples: crack sealing , crack repair and pothole patching.
  • Preventive maintenance – applied to pavement in relatively good condition to extend pavement life an average of 5 to 10 years.
    Examples: slurry seal, chip seal
  • Corrective maintenance – a reactive method that extends roadway life through structural enhancements such as resurfacing and reconstruction. 
    Example: mill and overlay

Roads are typically rebuilt once they are completely deteriorated, which makes scheduled maintenance critical for extending the life of existing roads. Concrete pavement can receive routine maintenance, but since concrete is stronger than asphalt, it is more difficult to perform other types of maintenance and often requires full removal and installation of new material.
