The city of Syracuse would like to pave more roads this year. So in hopes of getting the city streets in better shape, the city will be increasing its budget for road paving this year!
The city will budget $4 million for road paving this coming budget year, which will be a 14% increase over last year. The request will be submitted to the Syracuse Common Council this week, which will need to approve the proposal before it becomes effective.
The additional money will allow the city to pave 3.8 miles of pavement within the city limits. Syracuse officials uses road ratings and resident complaints to decide which roads to pave. Thirteen roads, including portions of Adams Street, East Fayette Street, Midland Avenue, and East Brighton Street are scheduled for paving. Watch out for detour signs this year, right?
