The $450,000 contract with Nip Kelly will be funded by the Transportation Trust Fund sales tax.

Many city streets were already in a rough condition before a harsh winter weather season. Adding this contracted concrete repair program will accelerate the overall street repair effort. Related programs include:

  • Street CPR: Street patching and overlays completed by City crews for urgent needs
  • Annual asphalt overlay program funded by the Transportation Trust Fund
  • Ongoing concrete repairs completed by City street crews, funded by the Public Works operating budget

City crews, contractors, utility companies and others are working on projects across the city every day. Please be alert and careful in work zones.
