The city plans to repair and repave 10 residential streets this year.

City Council reviewed an $839,446 contract on July 15 for Crossroads Asphalt Recycling Inc. of Columbia Station to do the work as part of the 2019 Street Repair program.

The streets to be repaired are: Addington Boulevard, Kingsbury Drive, Kings Mill Drive, Harwich Court, Dale Avenue, Purnell Avenue, Laurel Avenue, Riverwood Avenue, Sunnyhill Drive and Beach Cliff Boulevard from Frazier Drive to Detroit Road.

Repairs will range from in-depth concrete restructuring to asphalt laying.

Money for the work comes from the 0.5 percent income tax increase that voters approved in 2014. The increase raises about $2.3 million annually that is designated for capital improvements or new equipment.

Council is to vote on the contract Monday. If it’s approved, work will begin in late August or early September and be done by Oct. 31, Safety Service Director Mary Kay Costello said.

“We look very carefully, and we give each street a rating between 1 and 10. Obviously 10 is if the street’s been paved in the last year or two down to 1,” Costello said. “We’ve done a pretty good job getting through the roads rated 1 and 2. Now we’re into the roads rated 3.”
