City paving may start soon

As summer winds down the city of Dunkirk will get to paving some of its streets if Common Council approves a resolution accepting the bid of H. Olsen & Sons of Forestville today when it meets at 5:30 p.m. in City Hall.

The bid had two aspects, milling to 1.5 inches deep; and paving to 1-inch deep conforming to state Department of Transportation specifications.

Milling is scheduled to be done on Washington Avenue from Fifth to Seventh streets; Park Avenue from Third to Second streets; South Ermine Street; North Beagle Street from Pine Street to Lakefront Boulevard; Robin and Deer streets from Second to Route 5.

In addition to the streets to be milled, paving is scheduled for Pine Street from Wright to Rabbit streets and Cedar Street west of Ounce Street.

The sections of the following streets that were begun last year will now receive a hot-in-place paving treatment: Pelican, Brooks, West Chestnut, Swan, Eagle, Columbus, Main, Lincoln, Maple, Nevins, Tenny, Benton and Bucknor. The Washington Avenue paving is scheduled to be 1.5 inches thick.

In all, the bid would result in .75 miles of cold milling and three miles of new pavement.
