Paving Program

Background:

Each year the City of Chilliwack tenders asphalt rehabilitation work for various roads to maintain the driving surface and reduce maintenance costs.

  • Typically the Engineering Department recommends rehabilitation of roads in the worst condition in each classification based on a condition survey which is updated every five years. A comprehensive survey was done by Stantec in the late summer of 2017.
  • Minor drainage and curb and gutter improvements will be made adjacent to rehabilitation projects where significant deterioration has occurred or upgrades are required.
