Will your street get repaved? Check out this week’s resurfacing list

Every Friday, the Philadelphia Streets Department releases a list of roads it plans to resurface starting the next week. Usually, PlanPhilly tries to come up with some sort of lighthearted and clever lede. Not today. It’s too nice out today for that. We’re going to go read outside.  

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.
