Pavement Management Task Force

Inver Grove Heights has about 150 miles of streets, and keeping them in top condition is a major challenge. Over the last 10 years, many miles of roads have been rebuilt, but even more are showing their age.  

Getting our roads into the condition in which we all want them is proving to be an expensive and challenging goal. At the June 14, 2021 City Council meeting, our Council took action to undertake a new initiative to examine the city’s pavement management program from top to bottom. As part of this process, Council established a new Citizen Task Force on Pavement Management.

Objective

This Task Force will look at the current state of our roads, recommend target goals for pavement condition, explore all possible funding approaches, compare our assessment policies to those of other cities, recommend funding levels and strategies, and also investigate effective strategies for repairing streets. 

With the assistance of city staff, the Task Force will prepare and present a report to Council with recommendations by spring 2022.
