City Of Binghamton street paving to continuePosted: Updated:
As the construction season winds down the City of Binghamton says crews will have upgraded 15 miles of roads by the end of this year...
Mayor Rich David says the cost of that work totals about $5 million. Work has included overlay on streets which can last about seven years, milling and paving which can last about ten, and street reconstruction which can last longer.
"Just to put this into perspective a street reconstruction project like you saw this year on Chenango Street or on Riverside Drive, that will last approximately 20 years ," said Binghamton Mayor Rich David.
David says the city's goal is to pave 15 miles of streets per year. Binghamton has 150 miles of streets so reaching that goal would mean each street in Binghamton would be paved every 10 years.
