Repaving crews in Carmel will be a bit busier during the warmer months than they expected.
The Carmel City Council on April 15 approved an additional $1 million for road maintenance after enduring especially rough winter conditions, according to Councilor Sue Finkam.
“This year we need a few more dollars to help play catchup on the roads,” Finkam said.
The council had already approved $5 million for more than 70 repaving projects in the 2019 budget, and some are already under way .The additional amount will come from the motor vehicle highway fund’s operating balance. The city is in the process of determining which roads will be added to the list.
Most of the primary thoroughfares will be repaved between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m., with streets in subdivisions repaved during the day. See the original repaving list at youarecurrent.com/2019/04/08/carmel-summer-repaving-projects-announced.
