Sharpsburg paving project at South Main and 13th streets were completed in December 2018.

More than $73,000 in Sharpsburg paving projects wrapped up earlier this month, giving relief to motorists.

Work to redo the length of South Main Street was targeted as part of a commitment to focus on roads in the lower end of town, Mayor Matt Rudzki said.

Cost was about $55,000, with more than half the money slated in this year’s budget. The balance was covered by the state.

Other roads near South Main have been paved in recent project cycles, Rudzki said. They include Bridge, Second and Third streets.

At the other end of town near the James Sharp Landing, the portion of 13th Street that leads to the Allegheny River was also paved.

Cost was about $18,000 and was paid by grants from the state Department of Community and Economic Development and the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
