City Hall has issued tenders to pave seven more residential streets this year.
Resurfacing has been approved for:
* Marlborough Lane (between St. Clair Parkway and Virgil Avenue)
* Wayne Avenue (between LaSalle Line and Marlborough Lane)
* Pontiac Drive (between London Road and Exmouth Street)
* Michigan Line (between Waterworks Road and Telfer Road)
* Maxwell Street (between Indian Road and Copeland Road)
* Charlesworth Drive (between Christina Street North and Colborne Road)
*Devine Street (between Indian Road and East Street)
* Blackwell Side Road will also be resurfaced from Confederation Line to Churchill Road. That stretch will be paid for as part of the Oversized Load Corridor budget, city engineer David Jackson told The Journal.
The city assesses all its streets every two years, giving them a grade of one to 100 based on potholes, cracks and drivability, he explained.
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.
