76th Street (Proposed)

Schedule Date: TBD 2018

Project: ​Mill & Fill and Resurfacing

Mill & Fill is a structural pavement treatment that involves the removal of the existing surface layer - and in some cases the entire asphalt pavement thickness - with a milling machine and the replacement of the milled location with new asphalt. This process is used when a surface has deteriorated to poor condition and surrounding grades (i.e. curbs, driveways) must be met.

Algoma Bridge #52 (Proposed)

Schedule Date: TBD

Location Detail: 10 Mile Road over the Rogue River

Preventative maintenance project including expansion joint replacement and box beam repair.

Belmont Avenue (Proposed)

Schedule Date: TBD 2018

Location Detail: Pine Hill Drive to 10 Mile Road

​Project: Crush & Shape and Resurfacing

Crush & Shape is a structural pavement treatment that grinds, or crushes, the existing asphalt and 1-2” of underlying gravel. The material is then regraded, compacted and covered with multiple layers of paver-placed hot asphalt.

Belmont Avenue & New Roadway Connector

Schedule Date: September 20, 2017 - (work continues Spring 2018) May 25, 2018

Location Detail: South of 10 Mile Road

A new road is being constructed from 10 Mile Road and Thrifty Drive, south and west, to Belmont Avenue. Belmont Avenue is being widened from Graphic Drive south approximately 500 feet.Construction of new all season road will divert 10 Mile & Belmont Avenue left turns to the signalized intersection at the Meijer Entrance on 10 Mile Road. This project will provide for a three-lane roadway, with one lane in each direction and a center turn lane.

Location Detail: 84th Street to 108th Street

Project: Spot Mill & Fill and Chip Seal

A Mill & Fill is a structural pavement treatment that involves the removal of the existing surface layer - and in some cases the entire asphalt pavement thickness - with a milling machine and the replacement of the milled location with new asphalt. This process is used when a surface has deteriorated to poor condition and surrounding grades (i.e. curbs, driveways) must be met. During a spot mill & Fill, the deteriorated sections of the stretch of road are milled, removed and replaced with new asphalt. The entire raod- edge to edge, with then receive a chip seal application.

Chip Seal is a pavement surface treatment that combines a layer of asphalt with a layer of fine aggregate to provide a high friction-wearing surface over old pavement.

Fruitridge Avenue (Proposed)

Schedule Date: TBD 2018

Location Detail: 10 Mile Road to two Miles north

​Project: Crush & Shape and Resurface

Crush & Shape is a structural pavement treatment that grinds, or crushes, the existing asphalt and 1-2” of underlying gravel. The material is then regraded, compacted and covered with multiple layers of paver-placed hot asphalt.
