What is a Full Reconstruction?

Full reconstruction involves the complete reconstruction of a roadway, including replacement of pavement, curb and gutter, subgrade materials, and where applicable, public utilities such as watermain, storm sewer, and sanitary sewer.   Full reconstruction is generally performed in areas where public utility infrastructure has deteriorated to a point of needing replacement.  This typically occurs in neighborhoods where infrastructure is greater than 60 years old, and there has been a recent history of infrastructure failures, such as watermain breaks, localized street flooding, and sewer main clogs or breaks.
