Street Maintenance and Construction

The City of Stayton maintains 33.28 miles of streets. There are 26.27 miles of fully improved streets (curb and gutter on both sides, partially improved), 3.14 miles of partially improved streets (only one curb and gutter), and 3.87 miles of unimproved streets (paving, but no curb or gutter).

Transportation Maintenance Fee
Beginning in February 2011, a Transportation Maintenance Fee was implemented and included on monthly utility bills. The fee is listed as a “Street Fee.” Funds from this fee must be used for street repair and maintenance. 


Street Ratings and Project Selection

The City’s Street Improvement needs are many. The street improvements are prioritized by road classifications.  Per Stayton Municipal Code (SMC) 12.04.250 the City sets the following priorities for the use of its financial resources for street maintenance:

a.)   Arterial Streets

b.)  Collector Streets

c.)   Local streets with full width curb to curb improvements

d.)  Sidewalks, Pedestrian Paths, Trails and Bikeways

e.)   ADA Ramps and accessible facilities

f.)    Local Streets with partial width improvements

g.)  Gravel Streets

Each street in the City limits is rated biennially (every two years) by city engineers using the PASER system.  PASER system is a surface condition guide that describes and provides a simple, effective, efficient, and repeatable system to rate the condition of pavement. PASER is visual inspection system that utilizes the expertise of the rater to identify the quality of the surface condition of the pavement and the repair work that needs to be completed on the pavement.

Street project lists are determined by a team of engineers and street maintenance operators reviewing street ratings data, available resources, and looking at other infrastructure requirements that may be needed in the street envelope. The team matches projects with available resources and a capital improvement and maintenance lists are developed. Each year the list gets reviewed by staff and updated as needed.
