2021 Road Resurfacing Project Description:

  • This work represents an investment of $12 million in the City’s Residential Roadways.
  • With the completion of the Pavement Management Study in 2017 and the continued evaluation of the City’s roadway network, the City has a grading system that allows streets in the greatest need of resurfacing to be selected for repair. The City is using the ‘worst first’ approaches for road resurfacing.
  • The City estimates it will resurface approximately 76 residential streets in 2021.
  • The City will also be using the ‘fix-it-first” approach to restore a high pavement condition rating to streets that are fair condition.
  • The City estimates it will employ this method on 11 residential streets.

For questions, contact the City’s Administrative Manager, Mrs. Cherita Anglen at (216) 420-7605.

*Editor’s Note: Road construction invariably presents hazards to the public. All travelers are urged to use caution in construction zones. Public safety and the safety of workers is a top priority.
