CARS Program (for Arterial Streets)

General Information
The County Board of Commissioners recognized that one of the keys to the success of Johnson County is in its major transportation corridors that connect the cities of Johnson County. In response to this need the Board created the County Assistance Road System (CARS) program.  This program provides funds to the cities of Johnson County to construct and maintain major arterials. The County pays 50% of the project’s construction and construction inspection costs. Cities are responsible for design, right-of-way, and utility relocation costs.

Construction Cost: $2,225,000
Start Date: July 2018
Completion Date: Spring 2019 
Contractor: O'Donnell and Sons Construction

General Information
This is a City program to repair existing streets.  Every street is evaluated based on existing condition and given a numerical rating derived from formulas that take into account the amount and type of distresses in the asphalt pavement. This program will replace existing damaged or deteriorated concrete curb, sidewalks (where there are currently sidewalks), some driveways, new sidewalk where there is none and updating ADA (American’s with Disabilities Act) pedestrian ramps. The existing asphalt pavement will either be: 

  1. Reconstructed full depth, or 
  2.  Mill pavement between two and three inches then resurfaced with two or three inches of asphalt. Full depth pavement repairs will be performed as necessary

During the hot summer months temporary restoration in the right of way will be seed.  The contractor will be back in the fall for permanent restoration of sod.  Below is the list of streets, and their proposed improvements.  Please note that this list (and the proposed treatments) is only tentative and that streets may be deleted or added based on budgetary restrictions.

2019 MicroSurfacing/Crack Seal Program

Construction Cost: $ 312,000
Start Date: Spring 2019
Completion Date:
Contractor: TBD

General Information
Please note that streets on the map may change based on available funding. 

Micro Surfacing is a mixture of emulsified (liquid-like) asphalt, aggregate, admixtures, cement and water that is applied in a thin coat as a maintenance tool to assist in preserving the existing asphalt pavement. It helps seal the existing surface and has a life span of approximately seven to ten years.  It is not considered a substitute for reconstructing or resurfacing the street, but rather a less costly solution in prolonging the existing pavement until major work is necessary and as funding becomes available. The material cures by chemical and water evaporation.  Driving on the surface is not permitted until it the micro surface is cured; for this reason the street must be closed for the day.   Residents will be notified with a postcard in advance of street closures.  A door hanger will also be distributed 24 to 48 hours in advance of any street closing.  

 Crack Seal is a hot applied flexible rubberized sealant used to seal cracks in the pavement to prevent water from entering the base and sub-grade.  Sealing cracks and joints extends the service life of the pavement.  Streets will not have to be closed for crack sealing; therefore no notification will be given.  Crack Seal is completed in the fall when the cracks have had time to expand to allow the material to enter the cracks entirely.  We anticipate the Crack Seal Program to begin in late October.
