Program description:

Each year the Street Preservation Section resurfaces streets throughout the City. This activity starts in late spring and is completed by late fall. The 2019 resurfacing season began in late May 2019 with contracts awarded for all areas: northern city limits to the Missouri River, Missouri River to 59th St, and 59th St. to the southern city limits. The 2019-2020 budget for street preservation is $17 million. This includes $500,000 for maintenance of Parks roadways and $500,000 for Complete Streets activities.

Data used for choosing streets:

Public Works uses a data driven approach, combined with decades of experience, engineering judgement, and industry best practice to determine the list of streets to resurface each year. Specifically, the following data informed the 2019 list:
  • Road conditions using OCI rating (Overall Condition Rating)
  • Maintenance needs
  • Travel demand like traffic volume and implications of detour routes if no repairs were made

Street Condition Rating System
This graphic shows the street condition rating system and the corresponding pavement activities suggested for each rating group. Each KCMO street segment has a particular rating in our asset management system, Cartegraph.

Additional coordination efforts:

Staff is currently coordinating the 2019 street resurfacing list with other activities, including:
