Contractors are busy working on numerous roads in St. Marys as part of a $1.2 million citywide paving project.
New Enterprise Stone and Lime was awarded the bid for the full project which began last week.
The work being done is part of the city’s five year resurfacing paving project. This entails a two inch overlay which is laid down over top of the existing road.
Over the past five years, the city has completed base repairs on roads in order to prepare them for the resurfacing paving.
While roadwork is always weather permitting, paving and milling projects are expected to take about two days to complete and with paving only lasting one day. The contractor will be completing full width paving where possible.
According to the city work began on Grandview, Wendel, Martin and Birch roads, then moved to Poplar, Larch, Willow and Aspen roads.
Edge milling in preparation for paving is also being done as part of the project. This type of work will begin on Kaul, East Kaul, High, and Darr streets.
Additional streets and roads slated to have work completed on them are: Chestnut, Spruce, East Race, West and East Mill, Bavarian Hills, Neubert, Rettger, Jones, Schissel, Lincoln, Hall, Mulligan, Louis, Center, Church, Lenze, Kerner, McGill, High, Stackpole, Park, Carbon, Fourth, Sweeney, Teaberry, Fern, Hickory, Parkview, Las Glorias, Ford, Cherry Hill.
On-street parking will not be permitted during construction. Residents on the street should expect delays and are advised to use an alternate route, if at all possible during this time.
