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 based on a condition survey which is updated every 5 years. The most recent survey was completed in 2023.

Minor drainage as well as curb and gutter improvements will be made adjacent to rehabilitation projects where significant deterioration has occurred or upgrades are required.

The Engineering Department coordinates both timing and scope of work with the Operations, Development, and Utility Departments. This coordination avoids unnecessary utility cuts in newer asphalt, increases cost efficiencies and minimizes impacts to residents.
