Work will abound on streets

CLINTON — As temperatures increase so will the amount of construction in the city of Clinton.

The city will pour about $2.7 million into its streets by the end of this year, with many of the projects slated to start this summer as part of the pavement management program.

“I think the citizens of this town deserve it. They’ve had to endure for a long time, pot-holed roads that are hard on vehicles. It just makes for a better quality of life and it creates a more positive environment if your street’s been repaired and maintained. That’s our goal,” City Engineer Jason Craft said.

In the next couple of months, crews will complete the 18th Avenue North project. The sewer aspect of the project is nearly complete with the exception of the storm sewer west of Third Street. For the next month, the city will pave 18th Avenue North from Third Street to Roosevelt Street.

Once paving is finished, crews will complete the parking areas for Wagner Pharmacy and the Head Shed, construct sidewalks, complete surface restoration and seed. The final piece will be concrete patching from Third Street to the west end of the job, which should be complete by the end of July, weather permitting.

Next week, crews will remove the existing surface on Carriage Hill Drive from North 11th Street to North 10th Street and on Oakhurst Drive from Fourth Street to Breezy Point and will pave it back quickly, Craft said.

Crews will start patching the 1300 block of 11th Avenue North and 12th Avenue North as well as install ADA-compliant ramps on the sidewalks this month. Repaving on 10th Street from Eighth Avenue South to 11th Avenue South is also on the roster this month as is repaving 12th Avenue South from Windsor Driver to South 22nd Street and South 23rd Street from 12th Avenue South to Cameron Drive.
