Road contractors are racing the weather in an attempt to finish the city’s summer projects before the winter season makes it impossible.

And according to city public works director Rob Schibli, everything appears to be on course for this to happen.

On Sept. 30, paving was finished on Haugland Ave. on the Southside.

A majority of the 24 residents along the 5200 and 5300 blocks of Haugland, the western-most stretch, had decided to pay part of the repaving cost of their gravel road as part of a Local Area Service agreement.

The road was unpaved, uneven, dusty, and in need of repair.

Residents will pay approximately $300,000 of the $1.32 million Haugland project through a 20-year tax surcharge, with amounts varying depending upon each property’s frontage.

The other project to wrap up is a complete city works infrastructure rebuild of the 4700 Block of Walsh Street, which includes the installation of an asphalt sidewalk down one side.

Minor work on the block was ongoing last week.
