2018 Road Construction in South Winnipeg- St Norbert Ward
Evaluating Winnipeg’s Streets for Repair Work
Our City streets are evaluated by the Winnipeg Public Works Department using a street rating system as follows: New, Good, Fair and Poor:
- Typically, anything rated as Poor is automatically scheduled as a rehabilitation or reconstruction.
- Streets that fall within the Fair to Good category is where the Thin Bituminous Overlay program is utilized. The Thin Bituminous Overlay program (TBO) is a surface restoration technique that increases asphalt thickness by less than 40 mm. This is a cost effective treatment that benefits the road from premature deterioration by improving/restoring asphalt surface
In addition to the above rating system, there are several factors that weigh in on how a street is prioritized as a candidate for work, i.e. if it’s located next to a school or park, if it’s a Priority 2 or 3 street, percentage of concrete work required prior to doing the TBO, and technical conditions such as existing cross fall/slab faulting in panels, etc. The goal is to optimize the value of the pavement treatment and to optimize the pavement life cycle. The following were taken into consideration in developing the list of recommended locations for renewal:
- The distribution of the local street renewal projects among the fifteen wards of the City is based on the proportion of local street renewal needs in each ward relative to City wide needs. The most recent condition ratings were used to determine the distribution of local street renewal projects.
- The lane renewals are distributed among wards with the highest number of lanes in poor condition.
- The gravel road reconstruction projects have been identified as priorities based on traffic and maintenance costs.
- The industrial/commercial street renewals are programmed by need across the City.
- The distribution of TBO projects among the fifteen City wards is based on the proportion of the local street preservation needs of each ward relative to the City. The most recent ratings from the Pavement Condition Rating system were used to determine the distribution.
