The 2020-2022 Projected Asset Preservation Plan is now available. It includes the asset preservation projects projected for the next three years on our roadway and sidewalk assets, water and sewer assets, as well as our bridges and structures assets. Roadway and Sidewalk asset preservation management is a process of monitoring, maintaining, and preserving our roads and sidewalks effectively throughout their lifecycle. The goal is to employ effective decision-making to optimize a cost-effective mix of treatments, to maximize the number of roads and sidewalks treated to improve the networks as a whole.
The 8th Street East Water Main Replacement Project begins June 1, 2020 and will include the replacement of water mains, restoration of roadways and the rehabilitation of sidewalks.
