The Knox City Council recently approved the street paving schedule for this summer.
“We do have some intersections that we’re going to take care of that are in really bad shape. We’re still able to pave up to a half of a mile of streets. We used to be able to pave one mile and now we’re down to a half of a mile with the same budget,” explained Street Superintendent, Jeff Borg.
Sellers Ave between John Street to Washington Street will be paved, along with John Street from 500 East to the Cannon Ditch, Airway Drive from U.S. 35 to McGill Street, Lake Street from U.S. 35 to Prettyman, South Prettyman Street and the intersection of Henry Drive, and the Pearl Street and Bender intersection.
The estimates given to the Council are based on $71.00 per ton. The total cost of paving is $59,144.
