Ross posts list of streets slated for paving

Tony LaRussa

Ross Township has published a list of streets in the municipality that will paved this year.

As a result, road paving and bridge repairs are the two largest line items in this year’s budget.

The township’s $22.9 million spending plan for 2019 earmarks $2 million to pave roads and $890,000 for bridge rehabilitation and replacement.

In response to concerns from residents about the poor condition of township roads, the board of commissioners in the past several years have boosted spending for paving and other infrastructure improvements.

Beginning in 2017, the board began budgeting about $2 million a year for paving. In 2016 the township spent about $1.3 million on paving.

The $2 million set aside for paving is typically enough to cover the cost of resurfacing about 8.5 miles of road, according to public works officials.

The township is responsible for maintaining about 120 miles of roads.

A list of roads scheduled to be paved paved this year can be viewed online.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

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.
