DPW constantly solicits community input to improve services and maintain County infrastructure, and these efforts include identifying immediate and long-range road resurfacing needs. Development of DPW’s multi-year resurfacing and construction program includes public input, operational needs, our computerized pavement management system recommendations, and available funding to implement projects throughout the unincorporated County. Our pavement management program allows us to focus maintenance resources on the best preventative maintenance measures and helps us to choose the most appropriate and cost-effective surface treatment, or resurfacing, ”to extend the service life of our pavement on approximately 1,953 miles of County maintained roads.


To better understand community priorities, DPW solicited input from community planning and sponsor groups to assist in identifying road resurfacing needs specific to each community.  DPW’s multi-year road resurfacing program included input from all 26 community/sponsor groups to develop our multi-year program. The input received from our communities will be used as DPW continues to develop subsequent years of our program.    


DPW must respond to unforeseen occurrences such as natural disasters, public safety emergencies,  and other changes that could affect future project funding availability. Unexpected changes in DPW’s multi-year program may be necessary to accommodate changing needs throughout the County, but the resurfacing program presented here is our estimate of the projects we plan to accomplish. 


To identify the most effective means to properly maintain our County roads and keep them safe and passable for our residents and visitors. Maintenance engineers continuously survey roads in our multi-year program to determine the most cost effective and appropriate surface treatment to apply. These surface treatments can range from a simple slurry seal to a more significant removal and replacement of the entire asphalt surface. Once our field work is complete, more specifics will be provided here on this website to identifythe type of surface treatments we will use for each individual road segment.

Our multi-year resurfacing program will be updated as we develop and refine our plans in future years. Currently, DPW has prepared project lists of road segments for three-years of our multi-year program. Typically, construction for each year of road maintenance projects occurs in the warmer summer months. 

DPW is sharing these project lists with utility companies and adjacent cities to ensure proactive coordination of construction projects between our agencies. This effort will reduce premature damage to our roads through avoidable utility pavement cuts and will improve the service life of the pavement.

Current Status

Year One of DPW’s multi-year resurfacing plan included both asphalt concrete overlay and surface seal resurfacing projects.  Construction started in August   2016 and will be completed in May 2017, weather permitting.  Year One consisted of resurfacing over 50 miles of roads, replacement of culverts, and concrete drainage and accessibility improvements.  Year Two of DPW’s resurfacing plan was approved by the Board of Supervisors and competitive bids are scheduled to be opened in March 2017.  Construction of Year Two resurfacing project is tentatively scheduled to begin in May/June 2017 and is estimated to include 42 miles of road resurfacing.  Year Three of DPW’s resurfacing plan has been recently add to the interactive GIS map and a list of the roads are now available above.  Year Three is estimated to include over 33   miles of resurfacing. The estimate total resurfacing to be completed in the first three years of the program is 125 miles. Year Four is in the process and the list of roads will be provided once available. Please follow this website to check the most current information and updates.

Resurfacing Completed and Planned 14/15 to 17/18
