Annual Road Rehabilitation Projects

Project Summary

This 5-year road maintenance and rehabilitation plan will resurface or repave roads throughout Nevada County. Roads are selected and prioritized based on the County’s Pavement Management System to ensure revenues are being used on the most high-priority and cost-effective projects that also meet the community’s priorities for transportation investment. The plan includes various potential pavement preservation and replacement techniques. Work to be done includes asphalt overlays, micro surfacing, a/c dike installation, striping, and other repairs as necessary.


Work is to begin June 12th through August 10th, 2023.
