2019 Road Maintenance

Project Description

The City has established a Transportation Benefit District (TBD) to help maintain existing streets. Maintenance efforts include practices such as overlaying with new asphalt, adding new aggregate to the road surface (chip sealing), replacing lost binder oils on the surface (fog seal), and filling in cracks with elastomeric material (crack sealing).

The City has a program that determines best use of TBD funds to maximize maintenance efforts toward our citywide street system. In years past the City has partnered with Snohomish County’s Countywide Overlay Program. This program has become larger than intended and Snohomish County has requested Monroe and other cities not to participate for the next few years. As a result, City of Monroe engineering staff are making adjustments and will be performing the design and administering the construction contract this summer.

Existing sidewalk ramps adjacent to the project areas will be reviewed and reconstructed as necessary to be compliant with current ADA standards.

The following streets are targeted for asphalt overlays in 2019. We anticipate approximately $1,600,000 in preservation work, of which $260,000 will be paid by a grant from the Transportation Improvement Board (TIB) and $1,340,000 paid through the TBD. The overlay contract is anticipated to advertise for contractor bids near the end of March.

Project Update

The contractor (Cadman) is actively working on the streets designated for preservation efforts (see list below). All of the City streets except 179th Avenue SE have been resurfaced to-date. 179th Avenue SE has been prepped for new asphalt, and half of this road will be repaved Sunday, September 29th, as crews take advantage of sunny weekend weather. The remainder of the road will be resurfaced as the weather permits. Once 179th Avenue SE has new asphalt, the paving effort for 2019 will be finished. Miscellaneous work will still need to be performed, such as restriping the lanes and applying new pavement markings, as well as general clean up and property restoration as necessary. We expect the 2019 Road Maintenance project to be completed by mid-October.
