A $2 million road improvement program in South Fayette Township this summer includes resurfacing more than 75 roads throughout the community.
Youngblood Paving Inc. is set to start work Weds. June 17 in the vicinity of Hook Street in the Sygan neighborhood. The contractor is required to notify residents in advance when work is planned on their road. (See sample letter attached.)
The program prioritizes roads that had been planned for improvements the past two summers but were not completed due to rainy conditions. Additional streets also were added to the program list; any eligible streets not completed in 2020 would be moved to the 2021 program.
To help ensure quality work, the large-scale project will be overseen by inspectors from both the township and the third-party firm Lennon, Smith, Souleret Engineering Inc.
All roads will be improved with a layer of asphalt paving. Depending on the road, other work may include milling, base repairs or storm inlet repairs.
Over the past several years, the township’s road program had included sealing and/or applying Grip-Tight asphalt emulsion. This tar-and-chip style of paving had required multiple days in a row of dry weather. The new type of paving does not require the same lengthy periods without rain.The annual road plan is based on a study that assessed, classified, prioritized and rated all 70-plus miles of township-owned roadway.
Here are the roads that are eligible for the 2020 paving program:
