2014 Pavement Preservation Projects

2014 Pavement Preservation Projects

The City's annual pavement preservation projects have been awarded for this construction season, and will be constructed during July and August of 2014.  Neighborhood residents will receive project information by mail, with a specific schedule update in early-mid July.  Annual preservation work includes slurry seal projects and pavement overlay work.  Slurry seals are preventative maintenance, and are an asphalt emulsion with small aggregate that is applied to streets that are in good condition.  This treatment can extend the pavement life from 7-10 years.  Pavement overlays are rehabilitation work and are applied to streets that are in fair or poor condition.  Overlays will add 10-20 years of life to pavement.  Overlay work also includes updating ADA curb ramps within the project area to current standards. 

Slurry work will be conducted this season in the Westvale area of SW McMinnville.  For project information please click here

Overlay work will be conducted on Baker Creek Road between Hwy 99 and N. Baker Street; 24th and 25th Streets, Cowls Court and Davis Court in NW McMinnville, and on Rivergate and Miller Streets in NE McMinnville.  For project information, please click here.
