Every 2 years, Hampton uses a VDOT contractor to assess the public roads throughout the city. Based on this assessment, a pavement condition index (PCI) is generated. The assessment evaluates several factors, including:
Cracking and other problems related to traffic loads on the street
Cracking and other problems resulting from the effects of the environment on the street
The roughness or smoothness of the street
Maintenance of roads can vary from crack sealing to road resurfacing based on the PCI. The PCI then determines the schedule for street resurfacing. Some roads get more traffic and need to be repaved more often. By looking at the condition of roads over a period of time using advanced measuring equipment and in-person visits, the City prioritizes the streets to be repaved first.
You can view the list of streets to be repaved in the current fiscal year here. If your street is not on the schedule, it probably does not need to be repaved yet. If you want to report a problem or suggest a street that you think needs attention, call the 311 Call Center at 757-727-8311.
Please note that the paving schedule is subject to change due to unforeseen construction, funding, or operational requirements.
Potholes and Cracked Pavement
Potholes are usually caused by water that gets under the pavement, freezes, and then melts. This softens the pavement, and then the traffic loosens it further, causing the surface of the road to deteriorate. The City patches up to 7,200 potholes each year.
