Middletown City Council Tuesday approved a nearly $2.27 million contract for the 2018 street paving program

Council approved the contract with Barrett Paving Materials of Fairfield to pave six streets what all were rated on the Pavement Condition Index as poor or worse, or a PCI rating of 50 or less.

Streets with a PCI rating of 50 and higher are considered in fair condition, while streets rated 70 or higher are considered in good condition.

This year’s winning bid was 10 percent lower than the engineer’s estimate of $2.52 million and 1 percent lower than the next bid submitted, according to a staff report submitted by Scott Tadych, public works and utilities director.
