Paving Program

The City's annual $4 million Paving Program started in 2013 and is funded through a $189 Base Tax. At the end of 2016, 39.2 km or 13.7% of roads were paved in Prince Albert. This also includes water and sewer main replacements and repair.

How roadways are selected for paving

There are a number of factors that are considered before a street list for paving is finalized each year.

  1. Roadways are ranked by their overall Pavement Quality Index (PQI). The index range is 0 to 100. In very simplistic terms, zero is no road, 50 is a minimum passing grade, and 100 is a perfectly constructed new roadway.
  2. They are then given additional ranking by their overall importance to traffic volumes (arterials, collectors or residential streets).
  3. Another factor that is considered each year is the condition of the water and sewer mains that are under a roadway. If underground pipes are in poor condition, the roadway will not be repaved until pipe replacements can be arranged as well.
  4. Finally, roadways are selected by visual inspection after the spring melt to find roads that have just recently broke up but were previously not identified.
