Rick Gaul, the Plymouth City Engineer told members of the Board of Public Works and Safety that they continue to update the Pavement Asset Management Plan bringing it up to standard with the program’s requirements. He told them the plan must be updated for the Community Crossroads grant program as well as for any future federal funding projects.
During Monday’s meeting the city engineer estimated approximately 46 percent of the city’s pavements were rated good or better. Gaul said he would like to raise that percentage to 66 to 70%.
The pavement asset management plan want’s a more balanced approach to keep streets at least at their current condition. Taking care of the better rated streets is just as important as working to improve your lower rates streets.
The city engineer will present the pavement asset management plan to members of the board of public works and safety at their next meeting for approval.
