[ARCHIVED] Road resurfacing efforts kick into high gear

Daytona Beach Neighborhood Roadway Improvements

Preserving roadway conditions improve a community’s quality of life, and the city continues to invest in the maintenance, rehabilitation and repaving of neighborhood streets. Roadway maintenance is currently funded by the City Commission at $4 million for this fiscal year, and the city's road resurfacing program announced the rehabilitation and repaving of nearly two dozen streets.    

Crews are the process of rehabilitating Warnock Avenue, from White to Seneca streets, and Mississippi Street, from Iowa to Alabama streets. Future roadway improvements will be scheduled in the Madison Heights neighborhood following the evaluation of utilities beneath the streets.  

More than 20 roadway segments on the city’s beachside are scheduled to be repaved this fall. Crews will work from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. There will be temporary lane/road closures during construction.

Following the repaving of the streets on beachside, other areas of focus in the road resurfacing program includes the Woodcliff subdivision, Cedar Highlands neighborhood, Lakewood Park area, streets in Midtown and east-west streets near South Beach Street.

Roadways and adjacent sidewalks and ramps are visually evaluated to identify issues needing to be addressed. Utilities Department staff also evaluates underground utilities. Groups of candidate roads are selected from all parts of the city, taking into consideration other planned or recently completed projects, so that all areas of the city will benefit from roadway improvements. These groups of roadways are presented to the City Manager and City Commission when the funding agenda item is under consideration. 

Staff uses the Pavement Surface Evaluation & Rating (PASER) system to evaluate, document and develop maintenance plans for roads. The 10-point rating system (one is the worst score and 10 is the best) is widely used by communities and road agencies across the country. A roadway's rating determines what type of maintenance is required, minimal or extensive.

Routine Minor Maintenance

Differences between Routine Minor Maintenance, Resurfacing and Reconstruction 

Routine minor maintenance: Occasionally required through life of roadway; includes right-of-way mowing, sign replacement, striping, and repairs to shoulders, sidewalks and ramps.  

Resurfacing: Removing the top layer of asphalt and replacing it with a new surface layer; generally needs to be done every 20 years on average with higher volume roadways needing more frequent resurfacing. An average cost for resurfacing work is about $100,000 per lane mile (12’ width x 1-mile length).  

Reconstruction: Most involved and costly option. Necessary when the roadway base has deteriorated to the point where it loses structural strength to support the weight of traffic. This process involves removing the entire pavement and base material, reworking and recompacting the base material (about 8”-10” below the asphalt), and replacing the asphalt layer(s). The average cost is approximately $500,000 per lane mile. Fortunately, the list of roadways in this maintenance category is relatively short in Daytona Beach. 

Roadways are selected based on the condition rating and if there is any necessary underground utility work, as is often the case, and the amount of traffic on the roadway. These projects tend to be longer term since many of these roadways need extensive utility work (for example Grandview Avenue), and this coordination and construction can take years to design and complete.
