The City of Greenville is seeking bids from companies interested in performing maintenance work to some two dozen local streets.
The city is planning to spend almost $900,000 under the 2013 Street Improvement Program.
Bids will be accepted through June 20 for the project, which will not involve any new construction.
Director of Public Works/Interim City Manager Massoud Ebrahim has proposed 24 individual projects on portions of 23 streets in Greenville, divided among the six Council precincts. The work will involve milling, overlaying, chip sealing and micro-surfacing on the streets.
The streets proposed for maintenance under the program include King from Lee to Henry, Clark from Gillespie to Polk, Patterson from Mullaney to the culdesac, Nob Hill from Cedar Ridge to Creekside, Home Street from U.S. Highway 69 to the end, River Oaks from Home Street to the end, Northgate from Peacock to the end, all of Northgate Circle, Kingswood from Royal Oaks to Oak Creek, all of Briarwood Circle, Rosewood from Oak Creek to Aerobic, Poplar from Wesley to Sayle, Garden from Stonewall to Interstate 30, Meadowbrook from Stonewall to Stonewall, Cornelia from King to Sayle and from Moulton to Seventh, Creek Crossing from Shelby to Ridgecrest, Henderson from Stanford to Division, Redbud from First to Cornelia, Stanford from Moulton to Fourth, Hemphill from Moulton to Stuart, Frontier from Sahara to River Oaks and Royal Oaks from FM 1570 to the end.
A 2006 assessment of 200 miles of streets in Greenville is being used as a strategy tool to schedule reconstruction/rehabilitation projects within the city.
