Pavement Cut Degradation Moratorium revisions for Town of Marana
As do the other agencies in the region, the Town of Marana has a pavement cut moratorium on newly constructed asphalt, and a Pavement Management System with recent condition data to assess the publicly owned roadway infrastructure for optimizing available maintenance funding. This data has been used to develop a funded pavement preservation program to seal the town’s roadways on a 5 to 6-year cycle. Since this investment of public funds is now maintaining asphalt in a like new condition, Marana is proposing to revise the pavement moratorium requirement from a five-year threshold to an overall condition index (OCI) of 70 or above. Also proposed are Grounds for Denial of new permits for failure to perform or failure to pay fees in section 12-7-5 and updating Town Code to reflect the adoption of the latest PAG Standard Specifications and Details in section 12-7-8. Section 12-7-9 includes the proposed pavement cut moratorium language, including amending the warranty for such cuts accordingly to five years, which had been to increase it from the standard two years to until the pavement is five years old, or whichever is greater.
Marana is also working on a viewing portal to add to the mapping page on our website, which will provide color coded street segments to indicate which streets have an OCI of 70 or greater, and when the data was most recently collected; we hope to have that go live in the next week or so and will provide a link for ATB members.
Marana is asking for comments to be submitted by Friday, March 2, and hope place the proposed Ordinance on the next available Council Agenda shortly thereafter. See below for much of the information:
