The City of Kirkwood is continually faced with the challenge of determining how to provide for the long-term rehabilitation and maintenance of our streets. The City commissioned a study of the street network's pavement condition in an effort to raise the condition of our streets to an acceptable level of service. A final report was published in July 2015. The City now implements pavement preservation techniques to extend the service life of its pavements before they are in need of substantial rehabilitation.
The City has completed the 4th year of our ongoing pavement restoration program. Since the start of the program, we have resurfaced more than 130 streets and invested almost $12 million to improve streets with asphalt milling and overlays, micro-surfacing, ultra-thin bonded asphalt wearing surfaces, street reconstructions and concrete slab replacements. In Summer 2020, the City will complete the fifth cycle of pavement restoration. Work will be focused in the northeast quadrant of the City.
