Rehabilitation of Hurst Drive from Cox Mill to Golden Meadow. The project will include full depth road reconstruction and resurfacing to address poor roadway condition due to settlements and frost heaving.
The project is currently in detailed design stage. Construction is scheduled to start in the Spring 2019
Summary of overall objective of the project:
The section of Hurst Drive between Cox Mill Road and Golden Meadow has deteriorated to the point where it requires complete reconstruction (removal and replacement of the asphalt and granular base material). Unfortunately the pavement and road base have deteriorated more quickly than would have been expected, and the existing level of service is poor. This work will be extremely expensive, and disruptive.
The work on Hurst Drive between Golden Meadow Road and Big Bay Point Road was part of the City’s resurfacing program. Roads which are candidates for this program are generally newer and in better condition that those that require full reconstruction. This type of work is often equated with changing the oil in your car – periodic investment in preventative maintenance which extends the lives of roads and other assets and defers more costly investment. The cost of this type of activity is significantly less expensive than full reconstruction.
In managing pavement city-wide, the City is challenged with balancing investment in reactive work such as the reconstruction of Hurst from Cox Mill to Golden Meadow, with undertaking the planned preventative work that is considered best practice. By undertaking the resurfacing treatment from Golden Meadow to Big Bay Point in 2017, we will have extended the life of the remaining road structure (base asphalt and granular material), maintained the level of service to the public, and prevented the road from slipping to the next level of deterioration, where rehabilitation would have been more costly and disruptive.
