Did you know, reconstruction of a street costs $1.3 million per mile, while road preservation methods such as crack sealing cost as little as $5,500 per mile?
The City of Littleton is taking a new holistic approach when it comes to maintaining and caring for its roads. The public works department will soon be tackling several projects to preserve and maintain certain Littleton roads, to keep them from needing future reconstruction.
The first street rehabilitation project on staff’s radar is Mineral Avenue westbound from Broadway to Windermere. In that area, street pavement that is in poor condition will be milled and a new surface will be paved. Damaged concrete curb, gutter, and sidewalk will also be replaced. While work is going on delays are possible, but access will be maintained to all residents and businesses. Construction is scheduled to go through October 2017.
Another big project in the works is Broadway from Caley to Arapahoe. The City of Littleton will team up with the City of Centennial to mill and pave a new surface. On that stretch damaged concrete curb, gutter, and sidewalk will also be replaced. Delays should be expected in this area as well and construction is expected to continue through October.
