Project Status: In Design
The 2023 street preservation efforts include resurfacing aging roadway surfaces, as well as updating nearby sidewalk ramps to current federal standards. When the streets are resurfaced, the process typically involves grinding away the top two or three inches of existing asphalt and then repaving with new asphalt to original grade. If the street surface is very deteriorated the entire asphalt road surface may have to be removed and the underlying crushed rock regraded and compacted.
The City of Monroe uses a pavement management program to help identify which streets are candidates for preservation considering both the pavement rating and available budget. The candidate streets for this year are depicted in the image below (red lines):
The streets will be identified in four preliminary groups as follows:
|GROUP 1||GROUP 2||GROUP 3||GROUP 4|
|146th St SE||Ramblewood Rd||Country Crescent Blvd||Rainier View Rd|
|169th Dr SE||Ravenwood Rd|
Group 2 and Group 3 will be the primary candidates for preservation, with Group 4 being possible depending on contractor bid pricing. Group 1 has been deferred to 2024 due to budget constraints and other planned work. The final street selection will not be known until bids are open later this spring.
