2023 Pavement Management Program

Project Overview

The City of Burien is responsible for repairs and maintenance of approximately 137 centerline miles of paved roads (residential 78%, collector 13%, arterial 9%).

The annual pavement management program consists of pavement preservation applications (crack sealing, micro surfacing and slurry seal coatings), maintenance items (pothole repairs), together with necessary full reconstruction and rehabilitation pavement overlay projects. The purpose of the program is to reduce the overall long-term cost for maintaining the condition of Burien streets.

Each year projects are selected by reviewing the current pavement condition Index (PCI), field inspections, and resident input.
