How often are special assessment street resurfacing projects done? What determines this?
On an average, Residential Streets are done every 15 to 20 years, Collector Streets like Divide Avenue and Rosser Avenue, every 7 to 10 years and Arterial Streets like 7th Street and 9th Street, 5 to 7 years. City Engineering staff make visual evaluations of the streets to help determine which streets are in a deteriorated condition and need to be repaired.
