Roads and Structures Needs Study–final

On 9/26 Council agenda there is the final report on the Roads and Needs Structure Study.  This study is critical input to our budget. Its quite clear that roads will continue to consume a significant portion of our capital dollars as the Study shows that there are roads requiring work “NOW” with an estimated cost of $19million. The Study also directs our effort to the right road segments taking into account both physical condition and traffic volume.  The Study with all the details as to how the rating process is done and how the priorities are called can be found there.  Here is the Staff report which essentially introduces the Study.

Here’s a very high level picture of our the state of our 302 km of roads for which we are responsible (i.e. does not include regional nor unassumed roads)

16% (48 km) of roads require resurfacing or construction improvements within 10 years with an estimated construction cost of $26 million.

7% (21 km) are rated as requiring work “NOW” with an estimated construction cost of $19 million.
