Journal Staff

Eight more Sarnia streets are getting asphalt replacement this summer.

Council has approved $1.1 million for resurfacing:

* Denmark Street (Sweden Street to Norway Avenue)

* Spartan Avenue (Errol Road East to Kemsley Drive)

* Kemsley Drive (Colborne Road to Indian Road)

* Giffel Road (Michigan Avenue to Errol Road)

* Lorne Crescent (Wellington Road to Lansdowne Avenue)

* Ross Avenue (Siddal Street to Carlton Place)

* Mack Avenue (Confederation Street to Ontario Street)

* Kintail Street (Mack Avenue to Palmerston Street South)

Cope Construction & Contracting won the bid for the partial and full asphalt replacement contract. Additional roads may be considered if money remains after completing the list, the city said.

The city assesses its streets and gives them a grade of one to 100 based on potholes, cracks and drivability, city engineer David Jackson has said.

Feedback from the public is also used when selecting roads for repair.

This year’s budget includes a record $18.2 million for Sarnia’s crumbling roads and bridges.

Repairs to seven other streets were announced in April.
