EDMOND — City officials are expected to spend $2 million on resurfacing some of Edmond’s worst roads.

The roads were chosen according to a rating through a pavement management system, said City Engineer Steve Manek.

"We try to get the worst streets,” Manek said. "We won’t be adding any curb and guttering.”

Members of the Capital Projects and Financing Task Force this week approved spending $2 million of the 2000 Capital Projects sales tax money.

City council members will make the final decision on how the money will be spent.

"These asphalt streets will be milled and resurfaced, and also the base will be repaired as needed,” Manek said.

There will be one base bid that addresses repairs on seven streets. The estimated cost is $1.4 million.

Five alternate bids are included with estimated costs ranging from $303,156 to $750,000.

These streets are not included in a separate $2.3 million project that will be funded from federal stimulus money expected to be awarded to the city.

This project includes seven miles of section line roads.

A third resurfacing project will overlay Broadway from Second Street to Comfort Road.

The $1.2 million project is part of the state Department of Transportation’s program, paid for with state money.

Work on this project is expected to begin Aug. 30 and take about a month, said Cole Hackett, Transportation Department spokesman.

"We expect to have 18 miles of streets resurfaced in the next 12 months,” Manek said.
