Mayor Barlow proposes $657,000 paving plan for Summer 2019
Mayor Billy Barlow is proposing a $657,000 paving plan for the City of Oswego this summer, a plan that focuses predominately on the east side of the City. Barlow says the City has paved approximately $2.5 million worth of City streets since 2016, with this year's plan sending that total to over $3 million. The City paving projects in the last three years have been supplemented by a considerable amount of paving done by New York State in the Oswego area, including State Route 481 and State Route 104 last year.
"My administration has worked hard since 2016 to maximize our CHIPS funding on actually paving roads as oppose to buying equipment and subsidizing salaries. Our roads and infrastructure desperately need attention and that is why we are crafting a plan earlier this year and looking to focus on neighborhood streets on the east side," Barlow said. "Following the completion of this paving plan, we will have paved well over $3 million worth of City streets in four years, a feat I am proud of. In addition to our paving plan, we will be shimming other rough areas and will have our pothole truck and road crews patching potholes when the weather allows," Barlow said.
2019 Paving Plan includes:
Mitchell Street (St. Paul Street to East 9th Street)
Church Street (Cherry Street to East 7th Street)
Hamilton Street (East 7th Street to East 8th Street)
Burkle Street (Syracuse Avenue to East 8th Street)
Bunner Street (Syracuse Avenue to East 8th Street)
East 8th Street (Hamilton Street to Burkle Street)
East 8th Street (Bridge Street to Utica Street)
East 9th Street (Bridge Street to Utica Street)
East 3rd Street (East Oneida Street to East Utica Street)

West Albany Street (West 4th Street to Dead End)
West 4th Street (Niagara Street to Albany Street)

The Common Council will consider approving the paving plan and sending it out to bid Monday evening during the Administrative Services Committee meeting at City Hall at 6:30pm.
