continued Deyoe compared the town’s paving structure as being much like going to the dentist. He said preventative maintenance is key, or the costs only increase greatly over time.
“The goal is improved health, without expensive reconstruction,” he said.
Deyoe said reconstruction of a road could cost up to 50 times the cost of repaving it. Costs for repaving also depend on the amount of road being paved and the type of material needed depending on the road’s use frequency and thickness.
“I think the presentation was very helpful,” said Clarkson. “Every year people have asked questions about paving. Some people think it’s too often, and now we (the board) can answer questions when they are asked.”
Some of the town’s larger repaving targets for this season include Kenwood Avenue, Wemple Road and Weisheit Road.
