2020 Annual Paving Project

Project Description

The City has established a Transportation Benefit District (TBD) to help maintain existing streets. Engineering staff utilize the StreetScan program that helps determine the best use of TBD funds in order to maximize maintenance efforts toward our citywide street system. 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). Some street segments are identified for only preservation, while others are paired up with utility reconstruction needs that collectively form a complex project and take a year or two to accomplish. In addition, existing sidewalk ramps adjacent to the project areas are reviewed and reconstructed as necessary to be compliant with current ADA standards.

City of Monroe engineering staff completed the design and are administering the construction contract for the 2020 Annual Road Maintenance Project. The anticipated work includes placement of hot mix asphalt, pavement repair, planing or grinding, construction of ADA ramps, pavement markings, utility adjustments, traffic control and other associated work. This project also includes updating pavement markings (e.g., striping, crosswalks, stop lines, and traffic arrows) at various locations throughout the City. These locations are in addition to the replaced markings associated with the overlay work.

Project Update

June 2020

After review, state licensing verification, and reference calls, the lowest responsive bidder is Lakeside Industries, Inc. The 2020 Annual Road Maintenance construction contract was awarded to Lakeside by the Monroe City Council at the June 9th regular business meeting.

Engineering staff are working with Lakeside to execute this construction contract and schedule a pre-construction meeting. The pre-construction meeting is expected to occur late June, with construction activities commencing in July.

The construction window is anticipated to span three to four months, with most work substantially complete by September 2020. Project notice signs will be placed before construction work begins. A digital reader board will provide advanced notification for construction activities that require significant traffic impacts, such as pavement grinding or paving.

About 300 public notification postcards were mailed to residents and businesses adjacent to the proposed construction work. Information on the postcard included approximate construction timeline, work locations, project description, project website, and staff contact information.
