Citywide Paving Begins In Warren

WARREN, Pa. — Paving in the city of Warren, Pa., is coming to a street near you next week.

City staff announced on Facebook that the 2018 milling and paving project is scheduled to begin today.

“Milling is expected to be completed within the first three days with paving to be completed over the next several days. Streets will be posted for ‘No Parking’ on the days on which milling and paving activities are to occur. Residents of streets on the list are asked to watch for the postings and to move vehicles parked on the street so that the project may move forward in a timely manner with as little disruption as possible.’

The following city blocks are on the list as part of this project:

¯ Bent Twig Road from Willoughby Avenue to Bird Avenue

¯ Cedar Street from Pennsylvania Avenue E. to Lexington Avenue

¯ Hazel Street from Fourth Avenue to Fifth Avenue

¯ Hill Street from McPherson Street to Connecticut Avenue

¯ Lincoln Avenue from Muir Street to the terminus.

¯ Madison Avenue from Shantz Street to Carver Street, and from Carver Street to South Street

¯ Palm Avenue from Wayne Street to Custer Street

¯ Wayne Street from Cayuga Avenue to Palm Avenue

A portion of the old runway at Betts Park is also slated to be repaved.

In addition to the paving, wedge curb work will be completed on Tall Trees Road from Bird Avenue to the terminus and Hill Street from McPherson Street to Connecticut Avenue

At a Warren City Council work session held in April, Department of Public Works Director Mike Holtz outlined how the city determines what blocks get paved.

The first step in determining what will be paved in a given season has occurred the same way for nearly 20 years. Calling the process the “basis of everything we do,” city staff examine each street in the city.
