Video+Story – City: Crews Repaving Streets at an ‘Unprecedented Rate’

According to officials with the City of El Paso, crews are repaving streets at an unprecedented rate thanks to historic investments in street repairs and a new approach for awarding contracts for resurfacing projects.

A total of 161 streets have been resurfaced since 2013 and another 101 streets will be resurfaced by the end of 2018. A total of 54, including 13 that have been completed, are to be repaved in 2017 and 60 more in 2018.

This road maintenance treatment provides streets with another 25 years of useful life.

The City’s Street Resurfacing Program recently changed the way it bids out contracts for street resurfacing projects. Contracts are now issued for two years instead of one to allow the City to repave more streets and spend less time on the bidding process to contract out the work.

The Street Resurfacing Program will be 67 percent completed following the completion of 101 streets in the current two-year contract. The total funding amount for the 2012 Street Resurfacing Program is $48 million dollars.

Year            Streets Paved (Committed)              Cost

2013                                 34                                    $3,267,001

2014                                 63                                    $7,766,732

2015/16                            51                                    $5,140,203

2017/18                            13 (101)                           $16,155,560
