Street Rehabilitation Program

Pavement Maintenance
Pavements are steadily deteriorating due to traffic, weather, and time. In fiscal years 2015/16 and 2016/17 the city has completed a total of four paving projects along residential, commercial, and alley corridors. General improvements for pavement rehabilitation projects include cold mill and AC overlay, removing and replacing concrete sidewalks, curb and gutters, upgrading and constructing new access ramps, adjusting manholes to grades, and installing striping and pavement messages.

Asphalt Rubber Hot Mix and CalRecycle

Asphalt Rubber Hot Mix, ARHM-GG-C, is asphalt pavement containing crumb rubber. Crumb rubber serves as a modifier to the asphalt, and provides the asphalt with properties which help it to resist cracking and rutting. The crumb rubber is produced from processing scrap tires. In an effort to remove the amount of waste tires ending up in landfills, CalRecycle offers incentives to cities that use ARHM comprised of crumb rubber from California Waste Tires. With the help of Cal Recycle, the City of Baldwin Park was able to divert 25,428 California Waste Tires from California landfills in years 2015-2017.
