City of Dubuque’s 2024 Asphalt Overlay Program Underway

The City of Dubuque’s annual asphalt overlay program began in late April and will improve more than eight centerline miles on 33 city streets or street sections during the 2024 construction season.

The program targets streets that would benefit from an asphalt overlay to extend the life of the existing pavement. The City of Dubuque Public Works Department manages the program which includes milling/grinding the existing pavement surface, recycling old asphalt, and repaving streets for a safer and smoother ride.

Unlike street reconstruction projects, property owners are not assessed for costs associated with the asphalt overlay program. Instead, the program is funded with monies from Iowa’s Road Use Tax Fund (gas and diesel fuel tax). The asphalt overlay program is part of the City’s yearly street maintenance activity, which is budgeted as $1.16 million for fiscal year 2025 and calendar year 2024 and includes approximately $750,000 to bring curb ramps up to ADA compliance along the overlaid streets.

The following streets are scheduled for partial or complete asphalt overlay this construction season:

  • 3rd Street
  • 12th Street
  • Asbury Road
  • Bluff Street
  • Brunskill Road
  • Brunswick Street
  • Bunker Hill Road
  • Burch Street
  • Century Drive

  • Pego Court
  • Raymond Place
  • Ridgeway Avenue
  • St. Ambrose Street
  • Sheridan Road

  • Summit Street
  • Sunnyview Drive
  • Sylvan Drive

An estimated schedule of the projects is available online at and will be updated as details are available.

Residents will be notified by mail prior to the start of the project with contact information and parking instructions. Normally, projects can be completed in one week and streets can be driven on soon after paving takes place and as soon as traffic control devices have been removed.
