The city of Newberg has entered into a contract to pay almost $210,000 to a company to finish a construction project on city pavement.

The $208,400 contract was awarded to C.R. Contracting, the only company to submit a qualified bid for the project. The bid amount was within the city's projections for cost.

According to city documents, in 2017 the council approved collecting a transportation utility fee which would be used for preserving and rehabilitating pavement projects around the city. Due to that, the city's public works department developed a five-year pavement maintenance program.

"The pavement maintenance projects commonly include one or a combination of crack sealing, slurry sealing, chip sealing, and/or fog sealing to extend the life of existing pavement," city documents read, which add that sidewalks ramp improvements to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act are not included in the project. "Chip sealing is not a preferred option until it is proven to work on urban streets."

The pavement project resurfaces existing pavement that includes thin pave, overlays or grind-and-inlays to restore stretches of road that are severely stressed or are in poor condition.

The rehab project does require ADA sidewalk ramp improvements in areas where there are existing sidewalks on streets to be rehabilitated.

The annual fiscal budget for project management, design, inspections, maintenance and rehabilitation of existing pavement and upgrade of ADA ramps typically ranges between $1.2 million to $1.7 million

According to the city's pavement maintenance project, there are 20 streets that need crack and slurry sealing, including Burlington Drive from Stephanie Court to East Edgewood Drive; Longest Drive from Tincup Way to The Greens Avenue; Greenlink Way from Ironwood to Masters Drive; Fairway Street from The Greens Avenue to High Tee Court; Link Court from the cul-de-sac to Fairway Street; Wood Court from the cul-de-sac to Fairway Street; North Meridian Street from Quail Drive to Edgewood Drive; North Center Street from Hilltop Drive to East Edgewood Drive; North Center Street from East Mountainview Drive to Crestview Drive; Aldersgate Lane from Crestview Drive to North Pennington Drive; Vermillion Street from North College Street to North Meridian Street; East Second Street from South Everest Road to East Third Street; East Third Street from South Everest Road to East Second Street; Elva Drive from East Second Street to East Third Street; Meredith Drive from East Second Street to East Third Street; Doris Drive from East Second Street to East Third Street; Ardus Drive from East Second Street to East Third Street; Corinne Drive from East Second Street to East Third Street; Bina Drive from East Second Street to East Third Street; The Greens Avenue from Ironwood Drive to NE Fernwood Road.

The streets needing crack and slurry seal include: Vermillion Street from North College Street to North Meridian Street; East Second Street from South Everest Road to East Third Street; East Third Street from South Everest Road to East Second Street; Elva Drive from East Second Street to East Third Street; Meredith Drive from East Second Street to East Third Street; Doris Drive from East Second Street to East Third Street; Ardus Drive from East Second Street to East Third Street; Corinne Drive from East Second Street to East Third Street; Bina Drive from East Second Street to E Third Street.

The 2019 pavement rehab project includes grind-and-inlays and ADA sidewalk ramp improvements, and will be advertised later for construction bids. Both the maintenance and rehabilitation projects will go under construction this summer.
