Why was only half of Old Mill Road in Castle Hayne recently paved and not the other half?

The conditional rating is in relation to a rating scale of 0 to 100, worst to best.

Gerald Taylor, N.C. Department of Transportation county maintenance engineer, said in an email communication that the department evaluates all paved state-maintained roads in New Hanover County every two years and issues conditional ratings.

“During the last Pavement Conditioning Survey the department inspected the road for cracking, rutting, ride quality and number of patches, among other deficiencies. The most recent survey was conducted in the winter of 2010,” Taylor said.

The conditional rating is in relation to a rating scale of 0 to 100, worst to best.

The State Route 1358 (Holland Drive) section of the roadway referred to had a conditional rating of 48, Taylor said.

State Route 2148 (Old Mill Road) had an average conditional rating of 60.

“The Ivy Woods section was not resurfaced in 1998 due to its overall condition, while the Runnymeade section was resurfaced. Therefore, the Ivy Woods section was in current need as opposed to the section in Runnymeade that was not,” Taylor said.

The timetable for all roadway resurfacing is compared to the total county roadway sections in need, he said. The sections of roadway included in a contract are determined based on the Pavement Condition Survey, average daily traffic and available funding, Taylor added.
