The City of Andover administers a street overlay program to rehabilitate and prolong the life of the City’s street infrastructure and defers the need for a more expensive total reconstruction. A mill and overlay is expected to extend the life of the streets another 15+ years before a full reconstruction would be considered. 

The streets in the following developments have been identified for a mill and overlay in 2021: Crown Pointe, Crown Pointe East, Crown Pointe East 2nd Addition, Hills of Bunker Lake 5th Addition, Cherrywood Estates, and Shadowbrook 1st – 6th Additions. The project location map can be viewed at the following link: Link to Project Location Map

Improvements would include milling the existing wearing course off of the roadways and paving a new bituminous surface.  Also included would be replacement of a limited amount of deteriorated curb and gutter, minor storm sewer repairs, and replacing pedestrian curb ramps not meeting ADA standards.  The water main in this area was constructed during a timeframe where bolts on gate valves have rusted away, so those would be exposed and replaced during construction.  

25% of the project costs are being assessed to properties fronting the improvements.  The remaining 75% of the project costs will be funded through the City’s Road and Bridge Fund, and in turn reimbursed through Municipal State Aid funds.
