Fox Chapel commits $1.3 million to road projects
Nearly a dozen roads in Fox Chapel are scheduled to be resurfaced this summer.
Fox Chapel council last week awarded more than $1.3 million in paving projects, including The Oaks and Hunt Road.
The following roads are expected to have drainage and catch basins installed, followed by milling and paving: White Fawn and Ridgedale lanes, Old Timber Trail, Fair Oaks, Fawn Meadow and Pheasant drives, Indian Hill Road and Glenover Place.
Several other sections of roads will be milled and paved as needed, Manager Gary Koehler said.
Youngblood Paving was awarded the contract.
Koehler said the borough bid with O’Hara and Blawnox, as they have in recent years, to earn a better price.
Fox Chapel property taxes increased this year after three years at the same rate to facilitate aggressive road rebuilding.
Council approved a tax rate of 2.95 mills, up 0.45 mills from last year, to be able to commit up to $1.4 million to road work.
