Back to Basics goal exceeded: 103 miles of streets preserved in 2013-14 (map)
The Portland Bureau of Transportation exceeded its goal of preserving 100 lane miles of streets in fiscal year 2013-14, with a total of 103 miles repaved or sealed. Preventive maintenance on city streets is more cost effective than waiting for streets to fall into disrepair and needing a complete rebuild.
The thousands of miles of streets in Portland comprise an asset worth nearly $5 billion. The Portland Bureau of Transportation is committed to maintaining city streets that were built to city standards. PBOT's maintenance program in fiscal year 2013-14 treated more than 100 lane miles of streets with a variety of treatments that will extend the life of these assets. The goal is to meet or exceed that total in 2014-15. Grinding and paving work occurs on high-traffic streets. The fog seal treatment is mainly used on low-traffic residential streets.
