Storm Drain Repairs Delay Paving On J Street, Lincoln Avenue

(BEDFORD) – The paving on the north end of Bedford has been placed on hold as Bedford Utilities make storm drain repairs on J Street.

Bedford Utilities work on storm drain issues along J Street, this delayed the paving of J Street

Repairs along J Street are expected to last a couple of weeks and then milling will resume.

The City of Bedford crews did not want to pave the street, then have to come back a few months later to dig through the new asphalt.

Paving on Lincoln Avenue from the roundabout to Sixth Street has also been placed on hold until the completion of the J Street repairs.

However, several paving projects have been completed including 4th Street from Lincoln Avenue to S Street. Residents on 4th Street endured months of torn-up streets and a bumpy ride to their homes.

“We want to thank everyone for being patient with us, from the stormwater project to paving of these streets which encompassed several months for the residents on the north end,” said Mayor Craig.

Paving Projects include:

  • P Street – Lincoln Avenue to the alley between 1st and 2nd streets
  • A section on 1st Street east of Lincoln Avenue
  • A section at 4th Street and O streets (North & South)
  • I Street from 14th – 15th streets
  • Lincoln Avenue from the roundabout North of Sixth Street
  • 4th Street – from S Street to L Street
  • I Street – from State Road 58 to 14th Street
  • J Street – from State Road 58 to 14th Street
  • M Street – from 7th Street to Peerless Road

The paving project was partly funded by the Community Crossing Grant the city received in the amount of $218,476. Flynn & Sons were awarded two separate bids for the paving projects in the amount of $468,613.
