Nine neighborhoods will receive upgraded roads in the coming months through the City’s ongoing street maintenance program.
The current project provides for repairs to curbs, curb ramps, gutters, sidewalks, driveways and pavement as well as pavement milling and overlay in neighborhoods south of Old Settlers Boulevard and east of Sam Bass Road.
Neighborhoods receiving upgrades during the current project phase include Old Town Meadows, Peach Tree Valley, Somerset, Sam Bass Trails, The Hermitage, The Woods and The Plantation as well as various industrial areas in the City. All of the identified streets are anticipated to receive repairs by the end of September.
In addition, work was recently completed in The Oaklands and Oak Creek neighborhoods.
The City manages more than 1,150 lane miles of roadways within its jurisdiction. The Transportation Department’s street maintenance program aims to preserve and improve the conditions of existing roadways by monitoring the state of its roadways and systematically repairing or repaving the top layers of City streets as needed. In recent years, the City has devoted $4.2 million annually in improving residential streets. Since the program’s inception in 2012, over $25 million has been expended to improve the roads in over 20 neighborhoods in the City.
