City Manager’s Weekly Report
for week ending July 5, 2019

Normandy Park Road Repair. The Manhattan View streets are paved, but require removal of stormwater siltation devices, as well as striping. This should happen next week. Also, we have paved 4th Pl S, SW 199th Pl, SW 176th/1st Pl SW, and SW 168th Pl, all identified in the city’s 2015 pavement management plan from Pavement Engineers, Inc., as requiring street reconstruction. Later this summer, King County paving contractors will be repairing the 4th Avenue corridor from the top of the grade at Normandy Road to the south. Based on the 2015 pavement management engineering assessment, we have more reconstructions, thick overlays, thin overlays, slurry seals, full patches and crack seals to complete. Sounds formidable and it is. Nevertheless, staff expects the bulk of our road obligations to be completed next year. Moreover, our expectation is that we will be able to pave everything identified in the 2015 study, even the street needs identified as crack seals, patches and slurry seals. The Normandy Park road system should be largely up-to-date by the end of 2022, maybe sooner. Subsequently, the next pavement management study will be completed, and the city will plan to get that new set of recommendations completed on time. In the near future, I will share a map that simply explains current paving achievements and the future paving schedule. The mapping and information we possess at the moment is not easy to decipher; it’s written in engineer. (No offense to engineers.)

Happy 4th of July weekend!
