Each year, the City of Manhattan bids concrete and asphalt street repair projects to take place during the calendar year. Based on Pavement Condition Index (PCI) values, streets within close proximity to each other are selected for repairs based on material type — asphalt or concrete. The close proximity typically reduces the contractor's mobilization and traffic control costs, which can reduce overall bids for the projects.
2016 Asphalt Repairs
Shilling Construction Inc. was awarded a contract to rehab North Manhattan Avenue with a mill and overlay treatment. The initial project consisted of the roadway from Bluemont Avenue to Claflin Road. Because bids came in low due to a lower price for asphalt material, the roadway from Claflin Road to Research Park Drive was added through a change order. Total construction cost is $521,358.10. This project is paid from the Special Street and Highway Fund through fuel tax reimbursements from the state.
