City council on Monday approved $1.5 million in repairs to streets around the city.
The work, which will be conducted over the next year, will include a mix of repaving, curb replacement, catch basin repairs and ADA curb installation.
Areas slated for improvements include portions of Scotch Pine Road, Red Pine Circle, Stamford Drive, Hartford Place, Hidden Valley Drive, Harvard Lane, Country Hills Drive, Winslow Road, Orchard Road, Devon Drive, Art Lane, Plymouth Drive, Anita Drive, Adelene Avenue, Moss Court and Wood Song Court. The parking lots at Kells Park and Lewis Park will be repaved as well.
Public works officials said that every year, engineers evaluate the condition of city-maintained streets and prioritize those in need of repair. Large roads, like Main Street, are maintained and funded by the state.
The work will be paid for with a combination of city funds, municipal street aid from the state and money allocated by state legislators who represent areas of Newark.
