The Cortland City DPW has a full list of summer projects lined up. Few roads will be repaved, but several other improvements will keep the department busy.
Starting in May crews will begin replacement of a water main on Yong Street. A portion of the water main on Central Ave at River Street will also be replaced.
Another large project is the extension of the road into the Noss Park Industrial park. The work is funded in part by a $200 thousand dollar grant.
The department will use a $100 thousand dollar grant for streamside bank stabilization along Dry Creek.
Crews will also be replacing pedestrians signs and installing new sidewalks and crosswalks at Barry School.
At the end of the summer, the DPW will remove the current Wickwire pool to clear the way for a new pool to be built.
They will also install new playground equipment in city parks.
DPW Chief Chris Bistocchi says local roads will be patched this summer, but no major paving work is planned. He is looking to purchase an $18 thousand dollar mini paver to improve the repair process.
