Ten Commerce streets — not counting the project on Broad and Elm streets — will be resurfaced starting this week, and another partly paved road is being widened and fully paved, thanks to the special purpose local option sales tax.
City manager Pete Pyrzenski reported to the city council at its July 2 work session that he’d negotiated a price with Pittman Construction Company, which is also performing the nighttime resurfacing contract in the downtown.
In a $66,000 contract, Pittman will widen South Broad Street Extension to 16 feet, prepare a base for the unpaved portion, resurface the paved portion and pave the dirt portion, plus the widened parts.
Other streets to be resurfaced include:
•Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, 5,069 feet — the entire length
•North Bowden Street, 898 feet
•Peach Street, 1,162 feet
•Little Street, 1,267 feet
•Clayton Street, 1,901 feet
•Chanticleer Road, 1,373 feet
•Wilson Drive, 1,320 feet
•Hood Place Drive, 528 feet
•Forest Avenue, 1,109 feet
•Homer Street, 1,584 feet
The cost for those streets is $219,550.
