Existing asphalt streets within Fayetteville city limits are on a master schedule to be repaved or resurfaced every 15 years. This is called an asphalt overlay. Work may also entail microsurfacing, which involves laying down a protective coating that extends the life of the pavement. Following this maintenance cycle results in fewer complete street rebuilds and in lower costs overall.
Additionally, the Transportation Division recycles the asphalt. Old layers of asphalt that have been removed are milled, sold to asphalt plants, and reused for new paving projects.
The City of Fayetteville does not maintain all roads within city limits. The Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD) maintains state highways, interstates, and access roads. For questions or concerns regarding areas maintained by the State of Arkansas, contact the local AHTD office by phone at 479-251-8418.
