Pavement Management Program
Each year the City of Arvada designates a variety of roads throughout the city to apply different treatments to based on the current quality of the road. Some are preventative and some are for repair or replacement.
These are the areas proposed to be addressed with various treatments in 2023. Proposed areas are dependent on the annual budget and weather impacts.
Navigate through the tabs to learn more about each treatment type and areas proposed for this year.
Concrete Replacement - concrete is replaced when feasible in areas where asphalt work is planned and the existing curb ramps and concrete do not meet ADA standards.

Mill and Overlay- grinding down the existing roadway, sometimes just edges, and other times the whole width of the road. Removes old asphalt (either mill or full removal), place structural subgrade material (if applicable), conduct full-depth patching of damaged asphalt, place the full-width overlay of asphalt.
- Lane markings will be placed after the asphalt is replaced. The timing of this work may vary.
Full Reconstruction- includes removing the entire roadway structure repairing sub-base roadway material, then replacing with all new intermediate and overlay courses of asphalt. Full reconstruction is more resource intensive work and typically performed separately from this program.
Mill and Overlay
- Kipling Pkwy between 58th and Allendale Dr - using Stone Matrix Asphalt which contains a modified asphalt binder and has increased rut resistance and improved durability

Crack Seal protects from water intrusion and other damaging factors. This is one of the most cost-effective preventative maintenance strategies in reducing asphalt deterioration and prolonging pavement life.

Hot Chip Seal - combination between a liquid asphalt emulsion and a thin layer of open-graded friction course (rock). This process provides a durable surface and waterproof membrane that will improve the existing asphalt.
Cape Seal - chip seal combined with a slurry seal that makes the material more durable and smoother.
Slurry Seal - thin restorative surface treatment that extends the useful life of asphalt by keeping air and water out and stopping oxidation. During the first year after treatment on hot summer days, Slurry Seal can become soft. This is normal and to be expected.

What to Expect
Once cones and temporary "No Parking" signs are placed in front of your home or business, the work is scheduled to begin within the next 24 hours. Keep in mind that weather or equipment problems may cause delays. Typical work hours are 7 am to 7 pm. Access to driveways may be limited at times during the work. Residents who need accommodations are encouraged to contact us as soon as possible.
- Emergency access will be maintained at all times.
- There will be heavy machinery, loud noises, dust, and vibrations throughout the repaving process.
- Night-time paving may be allowed in some locations depending on traffic impacts and noise variances.
- There may be lane closures or lane shifts to accommodate work.
- Please obey all temporary "No Parking" signs. Vehicles causing work obstruction may be towed to an adjacent street without "No Parking" signs.
Please use caution when driving in areas of heavy equipment, especially if you live on or near a cul-de-sac.
Keep in Mind
- Fresh pavement is hot, oily and extremely sticky. Try to avoid new pavement when walking.
- To remove sticky tar or asphalt from car or shoes, use fresh soap and water or a citrus-based cleaner. Do not use petroleum-based cleaners.
