2016 Roadway Rehabilitation
MILL AND OVERLAY: the Department utilizes a roadway rehabilitation strategy for extending the service life of a roadway. Resurfacing often includes stormwater drainage improvements, milling the top layer of asphalt, an Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) leveler course, intersection improvements, structure and curbing adjustments, sidewalk improvements including upgrades to meet American Disability Act (ADA) standards, signage upgrades and restoration of traffic markings.
STRESS ABSORBING MEMBRANE INTER-LAYER (SAMI): some roadway rehabilitation includes a highly durable SAMI treatment. It is similar to a Rubber Chip Seal treatment but it is used between the layers of the hot mix asphalt for a different purpose than surface treatment. It is utilized to extend the service life of various roadway treatments.
This project is underway and is expected to be completed in the 2016 construction season.
Beaver Street and Kendall Street have new concrete sidewalks, new ADA compliant handicapped ramps, new curbing, new crosswalks and signals and restored roadways. Punch list items will continue through November.
The Danforth Street area has been milled and rubber chip seal application applied. New curbing and sidewalks are also in place. Danforth Court, Hillside Street and Stearns Street have been restored as well.
