“A city-wide pavement assessment is conducted every 4 years to collect and update the condition of the City’s pavement, and may include information related to curb and gutter, [Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant] ramps, traffic signals, and pavement markings,” Adolph said in an email. “This data is then used to update the City’s street infrastructure inventory and used to schedule roadway repairs throughout the City.”
The $5 million set aside for street projects this fiscal year will fund repairs on Pinecroft, portions of Lexington Boulevard and Palm Royale Boulevard. Additionally, some of this money is funding the ongoing Seventh Street project, and if any funding remains, construction will also be completed on Dulles Avenue, Adolph said.
Construction was expected to begin on Lexington and Palm Royale once Pinecroft is completed. However, the city has halted these repairs due to contractors having some difficulty obtaining concrete material needed for the repairs in the early stages of the coronavirus pandemic.
“With the continued unknowns of the short and long terms impacts of COVID-19, the City has delayed major pavement rehab (Palm Royale Blvd. and Lexington Blvd.) projects until more details emerge regarding COVID-19 and its potential impacts to the construction industry,” Adolph said in an email.
All repairs under this project are expected to be completed by the end of September, according to Adolph.
