The City of South Bend announces the launch of its 2024 paving season. This year, the City plans to pave 50 streets which were selected based on a surface condition assessment completed last year. The assessment, conducted by capturing video and analyzing pavement distresses through software, produces a score between 0-100 on the condition of the street. Streets with the lowest score are prioritized for paving.
Once crews begin work on a street, it will take approximately three to five days to complete paving. Streets must be milled and prepped prior to paving and will be closed during working hours (7 am – 6 pm). Signage will be posted prior to the start of construction so residents and businesses are aware of the upcoming work.
Drivers should expect delays and possible detours when a street is being paved. In construction zones, motorists are asked to slow down, use alternate routes and be mindful of workers.
In addition to paving, the City will be conducting preventative maintenance activities such as crack sealing and microsurfacing throughout the season. Residents can follow the progress of paving work by visiting southbendin.gov/paving.

Well im sure the jobs will be done so that they can come back and redo them in 2 years! We can build things that can resist gravity, extreme temps, and meteor showers in space. We can make vest plates for military that deflect bullets. We can make race cars run 230 mph (and driver survive in a crash). But we still cant manage to build roads that resist potholes and last longer than 1 year! All about the money

Sounds like what a neighboring city used to call the “Elkhart skim”. Just put a REALLY thin layer down so the road LOOKS new, but there isn’t much material cost to it. It doesn’t hold up, though!

For the record, the current administration in Elkhart doesn’t seem to be doing this anymore. It happened mostly under Dick Moore.
