Is your street next? The list of streets to be repaved next week

With the regularity of the Jersey Shore’s tides, I get an email every Friday from the Philadelphia Streets Department with this headline: STREET IMPROVEMENT WORK SCHEDULED FOR THE WEEK OF [NEXT WEEK].

This week that date is May 29. That’s right folks: Sunday of Memorial Day weekend.

Does this mean no boardwalk, surf, and sand for some hard working street crews this weekend? We have no idea, but just don’t be surprised if you see the roads listed below ripped up for repaving when you come back to the city on Monday.  

As this Streetsplainer describes, to repave a street, it must first be milled, meaning the top layers of asphalt will be stripped off, and after a few weeks the milled street will be repaved. Following repaving the surface will be striped with traffic lanes. Some streets can take up to 5 weeks to be resurfaced; so far this year, according to Interim Streets Commissioner Mike Carroll, the wait has been about 8 days. During street reconstruction curb ramps will be upgraded and installed to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

In his budget proposal, Mayor Jim Kenney requested $23.8 million to resurface 55 miles of streets across the city. Last year’s budget of $20.4 million paid for around 85 miles of street resurfacing.  As of 2014, 900 miles of Philadelphia’s 2,575 miles of city-maintained streets were on the Streets Department’s paving backlog.
