Types of Construction Work:

  • Street Reconstruction is the most extensive type of project. Crews remove the pavement, the base below it and sometimes the curb, then construct a new roadway.
  • Street Rehabilitation removes and replaces the curb, then resurfaces the entire pavement surface.
  • Street Resurfacing involves grinding the existing pavement in order to put down a new top layer of pavement.
  • Road maintenance includes less extensive construction, such as patching, some pavement resurfacing, and correcting potholes and surface defects.
