Alan Levine 2017 Morgantown Paving Project Update Krista Baker June 16, 2017 MORGANTOWN – The two contracts for the 2017 Paving Project are still on schedule for total completion by August 25, 2017. Anderson Excavating is completing streets in the north side of the City of Morgantown, while Parrotta Paving completes the southside list. Anderson Excavating crews are milling First Street, Mason Street, Stewart Street, Virginia Avenue, Rawley Avenue, Mulberry Street, and Jones Avenue through Monday, June 19, weather permitting. Those streets will be paved through the end of July. Parrotta Paving has completed milling all roads it is responsible for. Paving is set for Parsons Street on Thursday, June 15, Shaw Place on Friday (6/16), Johnson and Louise Avenue Friday through Tuesday, June 20, and Charles Avenue Monday and Tuesday of next week (6/19-6/20). Families with children attending the Boys and Girls Club Summer Program in the Woodburn Neighborhood should contact the organization for changes in pick-up and drop-off locations during this time. In preparation for paving, Dallas Street will be closed to through traffic and parking Monday, June 19 through Friday, June 23. Crews will be doing demolition of the sidewalk and curb and pouring concrete. Motorists may run into delays or closures on these roads throughout the time workers are completing paving. City Engineers encourage residents to always use the detours that are made available. Any car parked on a street that has “No Parking” signs posted, will be towed during work. The 2017 Paving Project is larger than last year’s project with a total of 60 streets, 120 ADA ramps, and a price tag of around $2 Million. The project, as the case last year, is completely funded by the Safe Streets and Safe Communities User Fee. Anderson Excavating’s deadline for the north side paving is July 28, 2017. The deadline for Parrotta is August 4, 2017 for student sensitive areas and August 25, 2017 for total completion. Student sensitive areas can be found on the 2017 Paving List with an asterisk next to the street name.

Updates are also made daily on the Morgantown City Hall Facebook page and posted to the city’s Twitter page, @Morgantown_WV.
