Huntington Paving Begins in September

Updated 1 year ago Edited from a Press Release

HUNTINGTON – Twenty-nine sections of roadway will be paved in Huntington during the city’s fall paving program.

Paving is expected to begin in mid-September and be completed sometime in October, weather permitting. The list represents approximately $850,000 of paving projects totaling 3.31 miles.

In addition, City Council members Alex Vence and Tonia Kay Page requested that sidewalks be repaired in their districts in lieu of paving. Vence represents District 3, which includes much of the downtown, while Page represents District 5, which includes the Fairfield neighborhood.

In District 3, sidewalk repairs would take place on the south side of 4th Avenue between 535 4th Ave. and 555 4th Ave. and on the west side of 6th Street between 4th Avenue and 4 ½ Alley. In District 5, the sidewalk repairs would take place on the north side of 10th Avenue between 17th and 20th streets. The sidewalk repairs are estimated to cost $175,000 and are contingent upon City Council approving a budget revision to move funding for the repairs from the city budget’s paving line item to the sidewalk repair line item.

The approved budget for FY 2017-2018 includes $1.6 million for paving, meaning there will be approximately $575,000 left for paving projects that will occur in spring 2018, pending the approval of a budget revision for sidewalk repairs this fall.

Compiling the paving list began with City Council members submitting requests to Mayor Steve Williams. The Mayor’s Office and officials in Public Works worked with the West Virginia Division of Highways to prioritize the requests based on traffic volume, road condition and other factors.
