How much does it cost to fix a road?

Manpower and materials add up quickly. With a $2.3 million roads budget in 2021 and almost 400 miles of roads, the Metro District has tried to stretch every dollar.

Some cost examples: Paving one mile of road costs an estimated $1.1 million; Crack sealing every three to five years costs $20,000/mile; Chip sealing (laying of an oily, rocky adhesive to delay road degradation for 5-10 years) costs about $95,000 per mile.
