10-Year Pavement Management Plan

City and engineering staff rate approximately half of all New Hope streets each year. This rating data is incorporated into annual budgets and project forecasting parameters to create a street infrastructure management plan.

Focusing on both the short term and long term issues, staff identified and prioritized street maintenance activities to maximize the return on each dollar invested. Depending on roadway and underlying maintenance conditions, maintenance strategies are identified as mill and overlay, reclaim and overlay or full reconstruction.

City staff and the engineer update the 10 year pavement management plan each winter. The current update was published in November of 2021. Major changes from last year include the addition of 2031 pavement and infrastructure strategies to this plan. Additionally, an extended life span on seal coat and fog seal applied on the fully reconstructed streets has been observed in the yearly inspection of city streets. Based on that extended life, staff has included a proposed pavement management schedule in the attached Pavement Management Plan.
