Reno, Nev., streets receive surface treatment.
More than 280 streets (approximately 65 miles) are scheduled for resurfacing this year. Work began in early May and is expected to be completed by the end of July.
The City Council approved an acceleration strategy in February to address the number of streets that need repair. The program will begin in 2009 and use a blended approach of double-mix surface treatments that extend pavement life by five to 10 years, reconstruction of streets in the poorest condition, and preventive maintenance. The three-year effort will put Reno's Neighborhood Streets Program nine years ahead of schedule.
