Stillwater Transportation Department unveils repair projects

STILLWATER, Okla. — Stillwater’s Transportation Department wants to spend a little more than $4 million between July 1 and June 30, 2014, to fix 79.4 miles of streets.

It wants to:

• Rebuild 2 miles, cost $1.6 million.

• Rehabilitate 9.8 miles, cost $1.8 million.

• Sectional rehabilitation, 0.5 miles, $120,270.

• Perform preventative maintenance, 67.1 miles, $480,083.

Monday, Transportation Department Manager Jason Peek will present 39 street projects for City Council approval. The City Council will meet at 5:30 p.m. Monday in the Stillwater Municipal Building, 723 S. Lewis.

The city earmarked approximately $3.64 million in the fiscal year 2013-2014 budget. City councilors also are being asked to roll over $362,357 which was not spent in this year’s street budget. The money is allocated from the city’s general fund.

The city’s pavement management program will focus on neighborhood roads, Stillwater's Transportation Department Manager Jason Peek said.

“Probably about 95 percent of the streets recommended of that 80 miles are local streets within our neighborhoods,” he said.
