Pavement Preservation Program

Header Image

Pavement condition data is collected for all 1,100-plus lane miles of public streets every two years. It’s used to predict needed preservation work and to determine the best timing to maximize resources. A five-year pavement preservation plan is used to coordinate with other public and private projects. The types of work done under this program include: 

  • Resurfacing long stretches of roadways with fresh asphalt, typically done between April and October
  • Upgrading curb ramps and replacing sidewalks
  • Pavement sealing
  • New pavement markings

For contractors, engineers and project owners

The City of Bellevue requires paving contractors to be pre-qualified annually in order to perform paving operations on arterial roadways. Proper equipment and quality workmanship are essential to meeting the city's construction standards. Pre-qualification helps ensure quality paving  by verifying contractor's equipment and past project performance.

The requirements for pavement restoration following trenching or other disturbance are based on the Pavement Restoration Requirement Map (2021 map. The 2022 version will replace it once available) Please see the city's Design Manual, Section 23, for additional information on pavement restoration.
