The city spend $17 million last year on street rehabilitation.
Pittsburgh will add more streets to the list when a new paving contract is approved in coming weeks.
Additional streets will be paved through cost-sharing agreements with utility companies when they dig up lines for repairs and replacements. The city will release a list of those streets in the future.
