Pavement Management Program (PMP)

Sections

The City of Bloomington maintains around 342 miles of city streets. This includes snow removal, crack sealing, street patching, sweeping as well as structural maintenance.

Three construction techniques are used as part of the PMP program:

  1. Sealcoat involves spraying a bituminous adhesive on the existing surface. The surface is then topped with small, graded aggregate rock. Excess aggregate is swept off and recycled. This helps protect pavement from oxidation and the effects of moisture.  Street segments are typically crack sealed the year prior to sealcoating.
  2. Mill and Overlay involves grinding off the top layer of surface and installing a new top layer of pavement. This extends the life cycle of the original pavement.  In addition, street segments are typically crack sealed within a year or two of completing a mill and overlay to extend the life of the pavement.
  3. Reconstruction removes and replaces existing asphalt pavement and aggregate base. Curbs and gutters are installed if necessary.

The PMP trails program addresses the design, construction, and maintenance of the City’s 25 miles of street trails and 13 miles of park trails.

Trail segments selected for rehabilitation are designed to meet modern standards, including minimum trail widths and proper geometry. The construction techniques used include crack sealing, fog sealing, overlay or complete reconstruction.
