The city’s annual paving program kicks off this week | News, Sports, Jobs


Times Observer photo by Brian Ferry The long-awaited paving of Fifth Avenue from Connewango Avenue to the city limits of Warren is underway with a paver and a team of IA Construction laying down a basecoat on Monday. This project is not part of the city’s annual paving program scheduled to begin on Wednesday.

The town of Warren’s annual paving project will begin this week.

“We will provisionally start milling on Wednesday”, Public Works Superintendent Joe Reinke said. The list begins with Eagan Place from Beech to Dead End, Langdon Drive from Market to Clark, Liberty Street from Fifth to Sixth, Pine Street from Allegheny to Levee, and Struthers Street from Pennsylvania to Allegheny on day one – Wednesday, June 30.

The Thursday July 1 schedule includes Brook Street from Fifth to Roy and Pioneer to Terrace, Fifth Avenue West from Market to Hickory, and Terrace Street from Connewango to Brook.

The third day of milling, Friday July 2, will see work on Buchanan Street from Jefferson to Verbeck, Third Avenue from Conewango to the Bridge, and Verbeck Street from Conewango to Redwood.

Monday July 5th is the last day for the milling project, weather permitting.

The following streets will be milled: Averil Street from Madison to dead end, Bradley Street from Dobson to Pennsylvania, and Parker Street from Pennsylvania to Madison.

The Crescent Park basketball court is also on the list of paving projects.

The work is carried out by IA Construction. There will be no impact on the July 4 parade, Reinke said.

The blocks on the list will be closed to parking on the day of the scheduled milling and to traffic during the milling.

“The streets will remain milled for a few weeks until IA comes back and puts on the scuff coat,” said Reinke.

This work is tentatively scheduled to begin on July 12. The topcoat finishes the job and will not fall off long after the scratch coat.
