ERIE,PA (April 1, 2021) — Mayor Joe Schember alongside the City of Erie Streets Department announce the City’s Street Improvement Program for the 2021 Construction Season.
The City’s Street Improvement Program for the 2021 Construction Season includes milling and asphalt resurfacing of curbed and noncurbed asphalt streets, crack sealing and resurfacing of concrete streets, asphalt patching, general crack sealing, curb damage repairs and painting of traffic lines and crosswalks. In addition, Bureau of Streets daily operations such as street sweeping, installation of street signs, street light surveys, alley repairs and pothole patching will be continuing.
There will be three contracts for bid for milling and asphalt resurfacing of paved streets. Additional contracts will also provide for the installation of concrete curb ramps where required at the intersections of streets to be milled and resurfaced.
Completion of all work listed will be contingent upon weather conditions and bid prices. Additional streets may be added if time and funding permit. Contracted work will improve entire blocks curb to curb where entire blocks are in poor condition. Selective work will improve only damaged areas of blocks where entire blocks are not damaged. The selective approach will save damaged areas on a broader scope and allocate scarce resources to more areas of the City.
