Pavement Management Program

In 2012 the City completed a consultant study of the City’s 34 centerline miles of pavement. The rating of Good, Fair, Poor, and Very Poor was given for each street segment on the basis of a visual assessment called the Pavement Condition Index (PCI). The PCI provides a rating of 0 to 100, with a new pavement rated at 100 and a completely failed section of road given a PCI of 10.

Overall the City’s street network in 2012 was rated at “Good”, with an overall average of 74. Eagle Point is similar to many cities that expanded quickly, with many roads needing pavement maintenance at the same time. Although the overall rating in 2012 was “Good”, the analysis provided the basis to understand the need for a comprehensive pavement maintenance program before the majority of the City’s roads deteriorated. The overall goal of the program is to bring all of the pavement to a good condition (PCI of at least 80) and maintain that good condition at the least cost possible.

The completed Pavement Management Program Budget Options Report analyzed the total maintenance needs for the 5-year period from 2013 to 2017 based upon several different funding scenarios and targeted pavement strategies. The corresponding Street Saver Pavement Maintenance Program recommended a mix of streets throughout the City each year based upon the available dollars.

Pavement Strategies

Starting in 2012 the City has been developing three main strategies for pavement maintenance: seal coat, chip seal, and paving.
The residential streets rated in ‘good’ condition are well suited for the tire rubber modified surface sealing (TRMSS) seal coat treatment. The TRMSS is a Federal Highways Administration (FAA) grade material that seals the pavement and reduces the oxidation rate (deterioration) of the asphalt. By keeping the newer streets in good condition, it can delay or avoid more costly treatments in the future.

The heavier traveled roads require a more durable treatment. The modified chip seal process developed by Jackson County Roads is a cost effective way of treating and maintaining collectors and arterials. The traditional chip seal is followed by a polymer modified fog seal to lock in the rocks, with the benefit of a ‘newer’ look to the street.

Pavements rated at ‘poor’ and ‘very poor’ condition require grinding or removal of the old asphalt with and new asphalt concrete placed. Pavement overlays are the most expensive pavement treatment.

The 2016 Pavement Maintenance Program includes several projects planned this summer and fall.
2016 Crack Seal Project – The project completed 63,000 lf of cracks on the streets in preparation of the seal coat. The project was completed in July of 2016.

2016 Seal Coat Project – Tentatively scheduled for the second week in September, 64,000 square yards of streets are proposed for the seal coat, including additional crack sealing as necessary. See the attached map for locations.
2016 Chip Seal – Jackson County Roads completed the preparation and placement of the chip seal for sections of the following streets in August: Hannon Road, Crystal Drive, Ridgeview Drive, and Teakwood Drive. The fog seal will be placed mid September.

2016 Paving – Several sections of streets and alley rated ‘poor’ or ‘very poor’ have been planned for paving in September and October of 2016:
  • Shadowlawn Drive (E. Archwood Dr. north to ‘phase’ line)
  • Van Wey Circle
  • Lorraine Avenue (Loto St. to Sarah Park Circle)
  • Loto Street (short section by Royal Ave.)
  • Loto St. Alley (Royal Ave. to Old Fire Station property)
  • Robert Trent Jones Blvd. (Eagle View Dr. to Stevens Rd.)
  • W. Main Alley (behind Bob Moore Park)
  • Main Street (short section from Shasta Ave. to the Main St. bridge abutment)
