2017 Road Resurfacing Projects: 

Mayor Frank G. Jackson’s enhanced budget, thanks to the voters’ passage of Issue 32, allows the City to embark on more street improvement projects in 2017 than previous years. Projects span all City neighborhoods and wards.

Highlights about this year’s road work:

  • Street resurfacing began April 27 and will continue through the summer, weather permitting. The first resurfacing project was in Ward 4 on Parkview Avenue near the intersection of Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard.
  • Potholes are serviced year round, weather permitting.  The Department of Public Works has increased its pothole crews from three to 10 as a result of the passage of Issue 32.
  • As of this week the systematic pothole repairs have been completed for all 292 subsections in the City. However, the City will continue to monitor street conditions and provide pothole repairs as they are identified.
  • This year, with the completion of the Pavement Management Study the City has a graded system that allows streets in the greatest need of resurfacing to be selected. This is the ‘worst first’ approach to road resurfacing.
  • City projects it will resurface 95 streets this year.
  • City is also investing in preventive maintenance on recently resurfaced streets to extend roadways’ high condition rating.

Editor’s Note: Road construction invariably presents hazards to the public. All travelers are urged to use caution in construction zones. Public safety and the safety of workers is a top priority.
