Asphalt Maintenance

To ensure safe roadways for the public, the Streets Division performs annual visual inspections of our roads and parking lots in the spring. A 1-10 scale rating system is used to rate the road condition. Once roads are reviewed and rated then maintenance priorities and repair options are determined based upon budget and approval by Town Council. Repairs will be scheduled for the following spring/summer/fall season. Inspections of road conditions are made throughout the year so there are no surprises for our residents and guests.
Our goal is to have all TOB roads and parking lots rate at a 7 or above.

General Condition/

Treatment Measures

10

Excellent

None.                                                                  

New construction.

9

Excellent

None.

Recent overlay.  Like New.

8

Very Good

No longitudinal cracks except reflection of paving joints.

Occasional transverse cracks, widely spaced (40’ or greater).

All cracks sealed or tight (open less than ¼”).

Recent sealcoat or new cold mix.

Little or no maintenance required.

7

Good

Very slight or no raveling, surface shows some traffic wear.

Longitudinal cracks (open ¼”) due to reflection or paving joints.

Transverse cracks (open ¼”) spaced 10 feet or more apart.

No patching or very few patches in excellent condition.

First signs of aging. 

Maintain with routine crack filling.

6

Good

Slight raveling (loss of lines) and traffic wear.

Longitudinal cracks (open ¼” – ½”) due to reflection or paving joints.

Transverse cracking (open ¼” – ½”) some spaced less than 10 feet.

Slight to moderate flushing or polishing.  Occasional patching in good condition.

Shows signs of aging, sound structural condition.

Could extend life with sealcoat.

5

Fair

Moderate to severe raveling (loss of lines and course aggregate).

Longitudinal cracks (open ½”) show some slight raveling and secondary cracks.

First signs of longitudinal cracks near wheel path or edge.

Transverse cracking and first signs of block cracking.  Slight crack raveling (open ½”).

Extensive to severe flushing or polishing.  Some patching or edge wedging in good condition.

Surface aging.  Sound structural condition.  Needs sealcoat or thin non-structural overlay (less than 2”)

4

Fair

Severe surface raveling.

Multiple longitudinal and transverse cracking with slight raveling.

Block cracking (over 25 – 50% of surface).

Patching in fair condition.

Slight rutting or distortions (1” deep or less).

Significant aging and first signs of need for strengthening.  Would benefit from recycling or overlay.

3

Poor

Closely spaced longitudinal and transverse cracks often showing raveling and crack erosion.

Block cracking over 50% of surface.

Some alligator cracking (less than 25% of surface).

Patches in fair to poor condition.

Moderate rutting or distortion (1” or 2” deep).

Occasional potholes.

Need patching and major overlay or complete recycling.

2

Very Poor

Alligator cracking (over 25% of surface).

Severe distortions (over 2” deep).

Extensive patching in poor condition.  Potholes.

Severe deterioration.  Need reconstruction with extensive base repair.

1

Failed.  Needs total reconstruction.
