WEST PALM BEACH, FLA. (October 29, 2019) -
The City of West Palm Beach has announced new road paving projects as a part of the 2019-2020 Road Resurfacing Program. Totaling nearly $39 million, the annual program includes new and previously committed paving projects, as well as sidewalk and street sign condition assessments. The goal of the program is to ensure that city streets are in good condition and safe for all users. The program makes strategic improvements, such as grinding, paving and pavement preservation, to improve durability and reliability for all users of the City’s multi-modal transportation system.
The City prioritizes road resurfacing projects by assessing the pavement and traffic conditions on city streets. First, the City collected mobile images of its +260 mile network of roadways, sidewalks, and alleys. Then, the City created a Pavement Condition Index (PCI), which graded the condition and quality of pavement on streets. Finally, the PCI and annual funding projections were used to prioritize the pavement projects.
Some of the 2019-2020 road resurfacing projects include:
- 58th St., between Pinewood Ave. and Broadway Ave. (District 1),
- U.S. Hwy. 1, between 25th St. and 42nd St. (District 1),
- 2nd Ave., between Tamarind Ave. and Sapodilla Ave. (District 3),
- Carver Ave., between 7th St. and 13th St. (District 3),
- Pine Terrace., Dixie Hwy. to Washington Rd. (District 3),
- Flagler Promenade S. and Flagler Wy., Promenade S. and Flagler Dr. (District 5),
- And Plymouth Rd., between Webster Ave. and Dixie Hwy. (District 5).
The City’s utilization of the PCI over the past five years has helped improve the quality of pavement conditions. To learn about paving projects in your neighborhood, click on this interactive map: https://wpbgis.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=e6ad53ddda0d41b7816a35e682c43394
