[ARCHIVED] Township refines road maintenance strategy

Milling and repaving local roads every 12 years or so has been the region’s conventional road maintenance strategy. But it’s not very nuanced, nor is the road surface grading system which has been used since 2008. Sometimes, to extend the useful life of their pavement, roads need attention before their normal resurfacing schedule comes around, even though that maintenance could involve significantly less time, material, and money than traditional repaving. In an effort to make sure its approach to road treatment keeps Township streets in good repair and within budget, Cranberry’s Public Works department is refining its methods of road condition assessment, scheduling, and treatment. It is using a sophisticated PASER asphalt rating system in combination with Roadsoft roadway asset management software to guide road maintenance spending decisions. In a report to the Township’s Board of Supervisors on March 31, Public Works Streets Manager Bob Howland explained how the new approach being implemented in Cranberry will optimize the Township’s strategy for keeping up its growing network of local roads. In related actions, the Board approved separate contract awards for seal coating and resurfacing local roads totaling $659,000. For more information, contact Jason Dailey, Director, Public Works
