It's paving season in Greensburg.

Crews began work this week on an “aggressive” paving program that will resurface 15 city streets, City Councilman Gregory Mertz said.

The city awarded the milling work to Braddock contractor Mele & Mele & Sons at a cost of $43,926, which will come from the city's liquid fuels budget and a community development block grant, Mertz said.

Streets are being resurfaced in two phases. The first phase began this week and includes the following streets:

• Tribune Review Drive

• Taylor Street

• Wayne Avenue

• Euclid Avenue Extension between Highland and Unity Way

• Jefferson Avenue between West Otterman and West Pittsburgh

• Cleveland Street between South Lincoln and the dead end

• Washington Avenue between Cleveland and South streets

• Highland Avenue between East Pittsburgh and Knepper streets

Phase two will include:

• Northwood Road

• Markvue Circle

• Forest Avenue

• Morrison Avenue

• Brewery Street

• Westminster Avenue between West Otterman and West Pittsburgh streets

• Brown Avenue from College to Westminster avenues.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
