In addition to the citywide Pavement Assessment, the City considered the availability of local and federal funding sources, the status of project designs, the current conditions of the underground water, sewer and drainage lines, and federal judgements such as the requirements of the Sewerage and Water Board’s Consent Decree to help prioritize infrastructure improvement work.

It’s not uncommon for a roadway surface to appear smooth but for the underground drainage, water or sewer lines to have leaks. The City considered these factors when developing the comprehensive Capital Improvement Program schedule.

A list of the First Wave of Projects is below.
