Explanation
* Resurfacing is the most effective treatment to preserve and maintain the condition of streets. Timely resurfacing of streets improves ride quality, reduces the occurrence of potholes, and reduces the need for more costly future repairs.
* The 2020 - 2022 resurfacing contract will pave an estimated 92.71 miles in the city. The total mileage to be paved is dependent on asphalt price stability throughout the contract.
* Work will include traffic control, asphalt and concrete pavement milling, asphalt paving, base failure repair, asphalt surface treatment, utility adjustments, manhole frame and cover replacements, wheelchair ramp installation, sidewalk, curb repairs, and pavement markings.
* Streets are selected for repaving based on pavement condition ratings, field evaluations by staff, and information from a computerized pavement management system.
* Notice of resurfacing is provided to motorists through the use of highly visible signs placed on the street at least two weeks prior to the start of construction activities. Paving generally occurs between April and October.
* On June 29, 2020, the city issued an Invitation to Bid; four bids were received.
* Blythe Construction Inc. was selected as the lowest responsive, responsible bidder.
* The project is anticipated to be complete by December 31, 2022.
