Major and Minor Roadway Investments
FY 2016 - 2017 Investments
Having completed the necessary work on our major roads and with economic conditions improving following the Great Recession, it is now appropriate for the community to reinvest in our local neighborhood streets.
The current fiscal year 2016 budget includes a bond authorization of $4 million for pavement work of local neighborhood streets during the next two years. The recommended capital improvement project for local streets (CIP #78) is based upon future sustainable funding from State Highway Block Grants and a 0.5% tax rate increase through fiscal year 2019.
The City of Concord values the condition of our roads and our neighborhood streets are the next priority to keep the Concord community safe with improved road quality.
Pavement life is impacted by many factors: traffic volume, vehicle loads (weight), environmental conditions, maintenance, etc. The more a road is maintained, the longer its life cycle will be. The best method for road maintenance is to carry out the paving process through its life cycle with the funding available to get the full value out of the initial investment.
