Last week, Lakewood City Council OK’d capping the cost of the city’s summer repaving projects at $1.5 million.
City officials already have an idea of some of the streets that need to be paved the most.
We thought we’d ask you to weigh in: What streets are the worst?
Each year, the city analyzes the streets and sets out to repave the ones in roughest shape during the summer.
There were several listed in the ordinance, but Joe Beno, the city’s public works director, said that they are subject to change.
And usually do by the time repaving season rolls around.
The streets that will be paved are: Marlowe Avenue; the Arthur Avenue extension; Lewis Drive, from Detroit to Franklin; Summit Avenue, between Clifton and Lake Avenue; Lakeland Avenue, south of Detroit Avenue; Olive Avenue, between Hilliard Road and Delaware Avenue; Cove Avenue, between Lake and Clifton; and Woodward Avenue, south of Interstate 90.
“And these are not definite,” said Beno.
In addtition, the city also has plans to repave the entire length of Madison Avenue, but that's another project using different funds.
Should the bids come in lower than expected, city officials would consider additional streets for repaving.
Tell us in the comments the streets you’d like to see paved. Who knows, maybe we’ll put it to a poll.
