The 2019 Bond Program provides funding for the design and reconstruction of aging street infrastructure throughout the City. In addition to the street itself, other components may be included in a street rehabilitation project, such as:
- Curb and gutters
- Traffic signals
- Turn lanes
- Other components
Overall Condition Index Score
The Street Rehab Program is focused on rebuilding existing streets that have reached the end of their useful life. These streets are evaluated and given an Overall Condition Index (OCI) score.
The Street Rehab Program prioritizes the rehabilitation of roadways with the lowest condition scores (OCI scores of 20 or less). The City also intends to focus on one-time comprehensive neighborhood roadway infrastructure projects that complete both streets and utilities improvements.
The street segments included in the Street Rehab Program include streets with an OCI score of 20 or less and streets located in three neighborhood areas. The proposed streets included in the program may be subject to modification as road conditions change.
- Project Funding Calculation: $70,000,000
The funding amount is inclusive of:
- Performance incentive costs
- Rights of way acquisition
The funding amount is an engineering estimate of City of Denton costs at project completion.
In terms of mileage, local streets account for the largest percentage of roadways and serve to connect houses, schools, parks, and other neighborhood destinations. The Street Rehab Program allows the City to address areas where local streets can no longer be effectively repaired through routine maintenance.
Reconstruction of roads that are at or near the end of their useful life allows the newly constructed roads to be incorporated into the City's roadway maintenance program.
- Estimated Project Timeline: Ongoing
If approved, the street rehab program design phase would commence in the first year that funds are available. The specific start and end dates of street construction projects are dependent upon a number of factors and would be set on an annual basis.
