Road Equipment compacting newly laid asphalt

The Municipality of Port Hope runs an annual resurfacing program in order to maintain our road infrastructure and address any pavement issues. This program covers Municipal roads in both the urban and rural areas.

Program details

The program addresses a variety of road-surface issues such as stability and structure as well as:

  • Cracking
  • Patching
  • Potholes

If you come across a road issue, you can report a concern directly to Municipal staff.

Road conditions

Each road is rated as good, fair, poor or very poor based on the quality of the road surface. We then develop an annual resurfacing schedule based on the capital budget for the Municipality.

Streetscan Roads Asset Management Plan

 StreetScan was contracted by the Municipality of Port Hope to assess the conditions of 277.2 kilometers of Municipal-maintained roads. This final report reviews the scope of the project scope and schedule, StreetScan’s methodology, and StreetScan’s findings in the Municipality.

 

StreetScan utilized specialized ScanVan vehicles to assess the condition of roadways in Port Hope. Each ScanVan is outfitted with an array of sensors that includes 2D and 3D cameras. Data collected from the sensors is processed to identify specific road distresses and an overall condition rating for each road segment known as the Pavement Condition Index (PCI). StreetScan developed a Municipal-wide inventory of road condition and provided the location of potholes and metal features detected in the roadway from the distress data collected.

Maintenance and Repair Suggestions and estimated costs for repair were provided to the Municipality. These items were based on custom input of road repair preferences and estimated costs unique to the Municipality. The road condition report and these custom inputs are used to generate Pavement Management plans that the Municipality can use to make data-driven road repair decisions.
