2017 City Street Pavement and Specification Study
In early 2017 the City contracted with HR Green, Inc. to conduct an analysis of current street conditions, review of the current maintenance practices with recommendations on improvements to the maintenance practices, review roadway rehabilitation and replacement alternatives, create a replacement schedule for streets and develop funding scenarios to sustain the City of Clive’s streets. The final report was presented to the City Council on December 14, 2017. The report provided the following recommendations:
- Adopt new construction standards to increase pavement life from 35 years to 50 years
- Commit to regular maintenance and increase annual maintenance funding from $400,000 per year to $500,000 per year
- Start an extensive pavement treatment program that includes overlays as well as full reconstruction projects
- Increase total funding for street improvements to between $4 million and $6 million per year
- Prepare for a large amount of full street reconstruction between 2037 and 2047
- Set achievable goals and performance metrics such as maintaining street conditions based on traffic volumes with higher volume street being maintained at higher levels
- Track condition performance and develop a proactive, data-driven Capital Improvement Plan

In addition to the Final Report, an interim report was provided with recommendations for the design and construction standards for street pavement in the City of Clive. The interim report resulted in the adoption of street construction policy to increase pavement life from 35 years to 50 years.
The City will be addressing the remaining recommendations in 2018.
