The Raleigh City Council, on March 2, approved a $6,634,296 bid from Fred Smith Company for the annual street resurfacing contract. City of Raleigh maintained streets that have curb and gutter are included in the annual resurfacing program.
The City maintains more than 1,110 miles of streets. The City maintains an inventory of streets that includes the last time a street was resurfaced and the condition of the street. A pavement management system analyzes the street data and provides a strategic approach to resurfacing activities.
The work to be done by Fred Smith Company calls for the resurfacing of 46 street sections for a total of more than 15 miles. The road resurfacing work includes milling of the existing pavement, adjusting manholes and water valve boxes, sidewalk access ramp installations, placement of new asphalt, and new pavement markings. The work is scheduled to begin in early Spring 2021 and conclude in Fall 2021.
Funding for this project is provided through the adopted fiscal year 2021 Capital Improvement Program (CIP) budget for street resurfacing. The Minority and Women-owned Business Enterprise (MWBE) participation is 25 percent.
