The City of Mauldin has initiated its annual paving program. This year, City Council appropriated $2.7M for the paving of approximately 12 miles of city-owned roads. To leverage this funding, the City is participating in the Greenville Legislative Delegation Transportation Committee’s (GLDTC) Municipal Match Resurfacing Program (MMRP). The MMRP provides matching funds to increase the amount of available funding for repaving City owned roads.
The City’s paving program, annually, prioritizes the streets to be resurfaced and paved based prioritized based on an analysis of the Pavement Condition Index (PCI), street classification, development and utility scheduling, and the available budget approved by City Council. To assist in prioritizing the roads, the City contracted with IMS (Infrastructure Management Services) to perform a pavement condition survey of all City owned roads. The survey provided a network-level pavement condition assessment of paved streets located within the City and can be reviewed, here. The City’s paving program focuses on paving the “worst roads first”, taking into consideration traffic conditions and clustering streets together to reduce mobilization costs and maximize efficiency. A list of streets scheduled for resurfacing this year is available, here. This list may be updated periodically to add additional roads.
GLDTC will manage the road paving, which is being conducted by their contractor, King Asphalt, who will be milling and repaving the streets. The milling operation consists of removing approximately 1½ to 2 inches of old pavement and replacing it with new asphalt. It is anticipated that there will be some interruptions to the regular flow of traffic where these paving projects will take place. Those interruptions will be appropriately marked with signs to alert motorists, and residents in these areas impacted will receive adequate notice prior to the project commencing. Additionally, the City will use signage to alert motorists and residents that road construction activities are ongoing. Motorists are asked to use caution as they travel through these construction zones. The schedule for the roads to be paved can be viewed, here. The schedule will be updated as more roads from the 2021 paving list are prepped to be paved.
