Oakmont awards paving contract to Plum-based Tresco
Oakmont officials awarded this year’s paving contract to Plum-based Tresco Paving.
The contract is worth about $295,000. The company was the lowest of four bidders.
Council unanimously voted Monday night to award the bid.
The list of streets to be paved was approved in February. The paving list includes:
• Third Street from Delaware to Washington avenues
• Brooks Way from Fifth Street to Elm Way
• Woodmont Way from Seventh Street to the dead end
• Fifth Street from Hulton Road to Virginia Avenue
• The east side of Crystal Drive
• Third Street from Hulton Road to Archie Street
• Eighth Street from Hulton Road to Virginia Avenue
• Crystal Place
The borough and the Oakmont Water Authority are expected to share the cost of paving 14th Street.
The streets were selected as part of a five-year plan outlined by former interim manager Kevin Flannery.
The plan takes into consideration a road’s condition and expected lifespan.
Councilman Tim Favo said borough roads are evaluated each year and prioritized based on conditions.
The road crew helps set the priorities. The borough also checks with utility companies prior to finalizing the list.
Favo said work should begin some time in the spring. A projected completion date was not announced.
In other paving matters, council plans to have catch basin work done on Brooks Way and Fifth Street from Delaware to Washington avenues.
Council budgeted about $510,000 for paving projects including more than $200,000 for brick work along Allegheny River Boulevard between Terrace Place and Virginia Avenue.
