City Council Approves $1.2 million Streets Program

The City Council unanimously approved a $1.2 million street improvement program that will resurface 34 of the City's worst rated streets this summer.

The Public Works Department will use a new process that is significantly less expensive and more durable than traditional asphalt overlays to perform the work across the City. Officials targetted the streets with the lowest surface quality ratings - from 0 to 25 - to upgrade those streets in most serious need.

The resurfacing process uses recycled tires combined with a thinner layer of asphalt to create a water-tight, flexible and durable surface.
