The City of Littleton’s Public Works Department is well underway with the 2018 Pavement Management Program. Approximately $3.1 million of improvements are scheduled, including $1.4 million in TABOR funds approved by voters last November.
This year’s projects include a variety of pavement management techniques throughout the city.
Crack sealing was completed north of Littleton Boulevard between Windermere Street and Broadway in May.
Slurry sealing will take place on many of the same streets identified for crack sealing in the northeast part of the city.
Chip sealing is proposed on Prince Street from Jackass Hill Road to Ridge Road, Prince Street from Santa Fe Drive to Belleview Avenue, and Centennial Drive from Federal Boulevard to Prince Street.
Striping changes are proposed on Prince Street from Santa Fe Drive to Belleview Avenue which will modify the street to one travel lane and one dedicated bike lane in each direction. Turn lanes will also be modified to improve sight lines and safety.
The 2018 Surface Sealing Project and 2018 Mill and Overlay Project are both anticipated to take place in September and October. The in-house neighborhood resurfacing project is around 50 percent complete and is expected to wrap up in early August. There will be some type of preservation on 23 miles of city streets, which is 15 percent of the total of 161 miles in the city.
