Scoring process paves the way for street repairs

Aug. 31. More than five miles of town-maintained roads will be resurfaced starting this fall. The roads, listed below, are selected based on rankings provided by a third party engineering firm, according to Assistant Town Manager Tyler Beardsley.

The firm gives each road a score of zero to 100, with zero being very bad condition and 100 being very good condition, Beardsley said.

“Based on these scores, Town staff develops the paving list. Staff will try to complete neighborhoods or an area of roads wherever possible as well,” he explained.

For example, the majorit
y of the roads in the Stratford Forest neighborhood received poor scores, so the Town will repave the entire neighborhood “so it isn’t a patch-work,” Beardsley said.

There is a total of 5.2 miles to be resurfaced. Work will be concluded by June 30, 2023. The $883,500 contract stipulates that the Catawba Ave/Town Hall segment is competed by the end of this year.

Here are the roads:

Forest Shadow Circle between Sam Furr and Forest Shadow
Mary Ardrey Circle from the cul-de-sac to the circle
