“Council has continually made it clear that catching up on street paving is one of their top priorities. This additional funding for 2019 moves us another step forward in achieving that goal,” said Middletown City Manager Doug Adkins.
Construction will begin in July and is anticipated to be completed in late fall.
Officials said the city spends an average of about $600,000 in local funds, outside of state and federal grants, for street paving each year.
The city has 621 lanes miles of streets to maintain, and Middletown’s street network is considered to be in fair condition overall, according to the 2017 Pavement Condition Index done by Pavement Management Group.
In the breakdown produced in 2017, 50 lane miles of Middletown were in excellent condition, 79 lane miles were in very good condition, 87 lane miles were in good condition, 149 lane miles were in fair condition, 146 lane miles were in poor condition, 98 lane miles were in very poor condition and 12 lane miles were rated as “failed.”
In 2018, Middletown City Council spent more than $2.27 million for street paving.
