Board OK’s list of roads for paving

road list-2The Collierville Board of Mayor has approved the list of streets that will be repaved during the 2013 fiscal year.
The $1.5-million project, part of the Tennessee Street Aid Fund, will see 31 miles of Collierville roads repaved this year.
Bill Kilp, director of Public Services, said the streets proposed are an average of 20 years old.
“The annual project involves leveling the asphalt and fixing damaged sections of the streets,” Kilp said.
Kilp said many of the projects will be performed in groups in order to pave entire subdivisions.
Alderman Billy Patton said he has heard from several residents living on Powell Road. The street was not paved last year despite making the list.
“Is there any way we can give them some kind of preference this year,” Patton asked Kilp.
“Will get them done in one of the first groups this year,” Kilp assured.
