The City Delivers Roadway and Sidewalk Improvements

road and sidewalk improvements

The City of Stow provides a high level of service to its residents through a variety of improvement projects including road and sidewalk maintenance.  This is the season of orange cones, lane shifting, and yellow vests.   Please take caution when driving, this is all for the betterment and safety of our city. “I thank our service crews and service department for all of their hard work each year,” stated Mayor John Pribonic. “This year’s road projects and sidewalk improvements will enhance our roadways and neighborhoods in a significant way.”

The City’s annual resurfacing program delivers roadway improvements throughout our neighborhoods.  The road improvement project concentrates on residential roadways throughout the city because main thoroughfares are typically covered by state grant funding with a small local match.  Residential roads are selected for the project based on a rating system.  To organize and prioritize roadway improvement needs, the Service Department uses Paver 7 management software as a decision-making tool. Pavement condition forecasting and budget models require data from multiple-year inspections and maintenance costs.  The ratings evaluate pavement distress including cracks, potholes, rutting, weathering, and ride quality.  The result is that each segment of the roadway ends up with a pavement condition index (PCI) which is a numerical indicator between 0 and 100 that rates the surface condition of the pavement.  

Sidewalk repairs are the responsibility of the respective property owners; however, the City-wide sidewalk improvement program introduced two years ago continues this year with installation, leveling, and repair at no cost to the property owner.  The program is designed to benefit residents by improving the aesthetics of owner-occupied single-family homes, thus increasing property values and improving neighborhoods.

The projects budgeted this year include:

  • Over $2.4 million in asphalt resurfacing for roads
  • Over $1.3 million in concrete replacement for roads
  • Over $900,000 in sidewalk maintenance, improvement, and additions
  • Over $110,000 in roadway striping

For additional information, please contact the City of Stow Service Department at 330.689.2829.
