City of Columbus to Begin 2020 Resurfacing Program with 102 Streets

Funding of almost $13.6 million is approved to repave and repair neighborhood roads

Streets in neighborhoods all around the city will be resurfaced this year as the City of Columbus begins the first phase of its annual repaving program.

Resurfacing – 2020 Project 1 will repair and resurface 102 streets and construct 486 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) curb ramps along these streets. 

On Monday, City Council authorized a contract with Strawser Paving for nearly $13.6 million in capital improvement funds for the first round of the 2020 resurfacing program. The work will include milling existing pavement, overlaying with new asphalt concrete and completing minor curb replacement. Full depth pavement repairs will be made on streets where needed. Curb and sidewalk will also be replaced for installation of the ADA ramps.

“Neighborhoods throughout Columbus will benefit from this investment in resurfacing their streets and improving equitable access to employment, education, health and other community services,” said Public Service Director Jennifer L. Gallagher. “These core infrastructure upgrades will create safer neighborhood streets all around our city.”

“Neighborhood infrastructure improvements that enhance access and safety continue to be a priority to improve quality of life for all residents,” said Shayla Favor, chair of City Council’s Public Service and Transportation Committee. “By continuing to invest in transportation projects, we are improving mobility in our neighborhoods.”
