Street work continues in the city with another round of paving coming up.

A section of Kilpatrick Street off Bunch has been closed this week for milling in preparation for resurfacing.

“It will not be paved until the first week of August,” said Street Commissioner Philip Verdung. “That is also when the final phase of the resurfacing projects for this year will start.”

Weather has interfered with some of the work. Striping has been previously scheduled three times, only to be rained out. Weather permitting, striping is scheduled today and Friday on some of the newly paved surfaces from phase two of the bond-funded projects.

Among the paving projects still coming up are:

• Two sections on Tate Street

• Base repair and resurfacing on North Madison

• Base repair and resurfacing on Patrick Drive

• Two blocks of Douglas

• A section of Franklin Street between Tate and Fillmore

• Spot repairs on Edgewood

Also, “We’ve got a few spots here and there that have come up along the way — sinkholes and basic repair work,” said Verdung.

A few planned projects had to be set aside because of utility problems, including Chambers Street and part of Webster Street.
