Repaving Fillmore Avenue is nearly complete, and Republic Street in the Old First Ward is up next.
The city will likely have spent $10 million on repaving projects around the city this year when the construction season ends in three weeks, Mayor Byron W. Brown said Wednesday.
A $320,000 repaving of a 1.2-mile stretch of Fillmore Avenue, from North Parade Avenue to William Street, should be finished by today, said Public Works Commissioner Steven J. Stepniak.
In the spring, a $2.1 million streetscape project on Fillmore from North Parade to E. Ferry Street will begin. The street is considered a gateway to Martin Luther King Park, where a new splash pad and reflecting pool are being installed in a wading pool basin. The new water feature hasnít opened yet.
Elmwood, Linwood and Hertel avenues also have been repaved this year, and the city has added 10 miles of bike lanes.
