The Citywide Resurfacing Program is managed by the Civil Engineering Division at 865-215-6100.
The Citywide Resurfacing Program annually funds the maintenance and improvement of approximately 48 of the City’s 1,000 miles of public streets. The paving work is distributed evenly throughout the six council districts. The desirable goal for this program is for arterials to be paved every 10 years, collectors every 15 years and local streets every 20 years.
The Civil Engineering Division maintains a comprehensive Pavement Management System whereby all City streets in Knoxville are tested to determine needs for resurfacing. The Pavement Management System includes state-of-the-art technology such as laser surface testing and Dyna-Flect analysis for pavement and subgrade strength. This information along with traffic volumes and environmental factors are used to determine a pavement condition number for each street. Priorities for resurfacing are set based upon this information as well as coordination with utility companies and other City construction projects.
The list of streets to be paved is compiled during the winter months and a contractor is hired for paving during the spring of each year.
