How Much Does it Cost to Pave a Mile of Road?

While Michelin Better Roads applauds preventative pavement maintenance efforts, often it is difficult to avoid reconstruction and repaving.

According to American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), reconstructing roads after they’ve deteriorated can cost more than three times the cost of preventative maintenance

So, just how much does it cost to pave one mile of road?

Every road paving plan is different. The cost of paving a road depends on where it’s located, how wide it is, and several other factors; however, a good rule of thumb is that every mile of road costs at least one million dollars to repave, taking into account labor, equipment, and material expenses.

Preventative pavement maintenance can help you avoid the cost of completely repaving a road and allows your road budget to go further- nearly three times further!

To develop an informed preventative pavement maintenance plan, you need to be able view, analyze, and understand the condition of your road network.

That’s where Michelin Better Roads can help.
