The College Station City Council has voted to move toward using concrete pavement in new city street construction rather than asphalt, City staff first presented information regarding the city's paving standards in June 2016; city staff cited a study that found while initial construction costs for rigid pavement, or concrete, is more expensive, the maintenance costs over the life cycle of concrete roads are less expensive than for flexible pavement, or asphalt streets.
"We did a citizens survey this spring, and number one was the congestion and maintenance of the roads," said former Mayor Nancy Berry. "I think this is an opportunity for the council to adopt standards that will sustain the city going forward, put less cost on the maintenance of the roads."
