Mayor Horrigan Releases The 2023 Resurfacing List
Akron Mayor Dan Horrigan has released the full 2023 Street Resurfacing list. The City plans to pave approximately 54 miles of roadway this season including resurfacing for ODOT and Engineering projects in the City. Akron has budgeted $5,474,000 for this year’s program for resurfacing and approximately $1.5M for equipment replacement. A list of streets scheduled for resurfacing in 2023 (including alternates) is available here.
“By the end of this year, the City of Akron will have paved close to 400 centerline miles of roadway since I took office,” said Mayor Horrigan. “It will take many more years to realize the full impact of increased focus and funding on our roadways, but we are in a much better place with our roadways now than we were 5 or 10 years ago. I want to thank all of our service crews who make this improvement possible each year.”
The paving list and schedule are subject to change due to various circumstances such as weather and underground utility work. If streets are being used as highly traveled detour routes for various construction projects, resurfacing on those roads may be delayed. The Alternate (ALT) streets are only performed if additional funding becomes available and time allows.
In creating the resurfacing list each year, the City grades the condition of each street and paves the “worst first,” taking into consideration traffic conditions and clustering streets together to reduce mobilization costs and maximize efficiency.
Signage will be posted on each street several days before resurfacing work is scheduled to begin. Traffic is maintained as much as possible during this work, but on-street parking is prohibited on the dates posted. Periodic updates to the program will be posted on the City’s social media pages (Facebook: City of Akron, Ohio – Mayor’s Office; Twitter: @AkronOhioMayor.) Residents with specific questions are encouraged to call the Mayor’s 3-1-1 Action Center for more information.
