2014 Street Rehabilitation Program
The City’s annual Street Rehabilitation Program contracts with private sector contractors for replacement of broken curbs and sidewalks, preventive maintenance such as crack sealing, chip sealing and pavement overlay and reconstruction. With over 325 centerline miles of paved streets, it is critical that the City maintain its streets to provide a safe and efficient transportation system. It should be noted that the Street Rehabilitation Program is made possible through use of the City's ¾ cent Street Fund Sales and Use Tax.
Street projects for the Street Rehabilitation Program are selected based on system-wide needs and priorities. Priorities are established after examining many factors including the pavement condition, traffic volumes, and coordination with other utility projects.

What to Expect
Street rehabilitation is generally a two stage process:
- Repairs to concrete structures such as curbs, gutters, and sidewalks are performed.
- Rehabilitation of the street continues with either a resurfacing project or total reconstruction.
- If your street has been selected for rehabilitation, you will receive a project notification letter in the spring.
- As construction approaches, door hangers are also posted on affected homes to inform residents more specifically of the upcoming activities.
- If you have additional questions or comments, please contact the City’s Street Rehabilitation Project Manager, Alden Jenkins, at 303-651-8567.

portion of the annual Street Rehabilitation Program includes concrete repair of broken
sidewalks and curbs exhibiting drainage and safety issues, preventative maintenance
treatments, pavement overlays and reconstruction. The various Street Rehabilitation Program contracts can also be utilized to perform

This program varies from other Public Works capital projects in
that the scope of the program is citywide, with the overall rehabilitation needs of
the Streets System being rated and prioritized on an annual basis. The nature
of the work is ongoing, with the extent of work accomplished in one-year based
on the budget of that year, considering the particular needs and other capital projects.
