Carnegie paving contract extended; Lydia Street residents want parking limits enforced
Carnegie officials have given Youngblood Paving Inc. until Oct. 15 to complete the 2017 road paving project in the borough.
The paving project was delayed because the company is still working in other municipalities. If the work is not finished by Oct. 15, a daily penalty will be assessed.
Carnegie manager Steve Beuter said he doesn't see any reason by Youngblood Paving will not be able to complete the work by the extended deadline.
Youngblood was awarded the paving contract with a low bid of $359,495.
A total of 13 streets and the PNC Bank parking lot will be paved.
Streets to be paved are Forest Avenue, from Ridge Road to Grandview Avenue; First Street, from Third Avenue to FBM; Barrett Way, from Third to Fourth Street; Lee Street, from Washington to Kennedy Avenue; Bell Avenue, from Rosslyn Road to Justus Avenue; Court, Dickman and Dunbar streets, from Railroad Street to the dead ends; Grandview Avenue, from Forest Avenue to Summit Street; Fifth Street, from West Main Street to Diamond Alley; Elm Street, from Fifth to Sixth Avenue; Kinney Street, from First to Third Avenue; and Alice Street Extension, from Grant to Modern Avenue.
Residents living along Lydia Street in Carnegie have expressed concern to borough officials about vehicles parked on the road for extended periods of the day.
The borough street is designated as a two-hour parking area, but a lack of signs means police cannot enforce the ordinance.
Carnegie Mayor Jack Kobistek said signs will be placed, which will allow police to enforce the two-hour time limit.
Carnegie manager Steve Beuter announced meeting dates to discuss the 2018 budget.
Meetings are scheduled for Sept. 25, Oct. 23 and 30, and Nov. 20 and 27 in the municipal building. A December meeting could be added if necessary.
