Three rough sections of York City streets to be paved


A small but particularly rough patch of York City's roads will get a new surface soon.

The York City Council approved a contract with a local construction company to pave sections of three streets on the city's east end.

Kinsley Construction submitted the lowest of three bids for $267,519.

The streets to be paved are: Lehman Street from King to Princess streets; Albemarle Street from King to Princess streets; and Poplar Street from Albemarle to Lehman streets.

The project also includes updates to achieve compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act at seven curbs in the area.

Jim Gross, the city's public works director, said there is not yet a set schedule for the work.

"We would expect the work to occur in the fall," he said.

The project's cost will be covered by the city's Liquid Fuels and Community Development Block Grant funds.

Two other companies, Stewart & Tate and Shiloh Paving and Excavating, had also submitted bids.
