Streetsboro -- Seasons Road will be repaved next year from the Route 43 intersection south to the city's corporation line at Cackler Road, according to Bruce Terrell, the city's engineering director.
"Seasons Road is a major road used not only by Streetsboro residents, but also by motorists in the surrounding communities," Terrell said.
The total cost of the project will be about $800,000. The project will be paid for, in part, with $400,000 of Issue 1 grant money that was awarded to the city in March.
The city's share of the project -- about $400,000 -- will be taken from the money that will be budgeted for the 2014 city paving program, Terrell said.
The project is expected to get under way in mid-July 2014 and continue until October, Terrell said. There also may be some landscaping that will need to be done in 2015, he said.
Terrell said the area around the Seasons Road railroad bridge has been a problem because of the low clearance. This will be fixed by lowering the pavement under the bridge, he said. In addition, there will be curb and gutter repair, and shoulder restoration on the roadway.
"The service department has been patching Seasons Road for the past few years," he said, adding that the last time road was completely resurfaced was in the early 2000s.
Seasons Road was rated by city officials as being among the roadways in the city in need of repaving.
Terrell said the city's engineering firm, GPD, along with the city's service and engineering departments review the condition of the roads, look at when the roads were last paved and determine which roads are in greatest need of attention.
He said the list of roads is discussed with Mayor Glenn Broska to finalize which roads should be done.
The city has not announced what other roads will be repaved in of 2014.
