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 1,941.91 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

DPW’s first year (2015-16) of its resurfacing program was completed in June 2017 and updated in the interactive GIS map and list of roads. Year One resurfacing projects included over 53 miles of asphalt concrete overlays and surface seals. These projects also included replacement of culverts and concrete drainage and accessibility improvements. Resurfacing projects for the second year of our program (2016-17) is in construction now and are expected to be completed in the fall of 2017. Year Two projects include over 72 miles of asphalt concrete overlays and surface seals, replacement of culverts and concrete drainage and accessibility improvements. The third year (2017-18) of our program is currently in the design stage and tentatively scheduled to go out to bid in early 2018 with construction beginning summer 2018. Year Three projects are estimated to include over 33 miles or road resurfacing, replacement of culverts and concrete drainage and accessibility improvements. The estimated total resurfacing of our first three years of our program is 158 miles. DPW will continue to work on future years of the road resurfacing program and will share the list when available.
