Why does the city do mill and overlay projects?

Mill and Overlay projects are one component of the city's comprehensive pavement management program. Pavement surfaces tend to wear out much faster than the other components of a street (such as curbs, sidewalks, and utilities) due to the impacts of heavy vehicles. If a pavement surface is not maintained adequately, the pavement will need much more significant and costly repairs in a short amount of time to avoid deterioration of the roadway surface.
