Mayor Sollars gives update on 2016 roadwork

Roadwork has been a 2016 priority in the City of Taylor, and this week's City of Taylor Podcast, Coffee with Mayor Rick Sollars, discusses the ongoing program with host Dr. Paul Reeves and Karl Ziomek.

Mayor Sollars talks about the City being more proactive in infrastructure repairs, and covers areas like concrete panel replacement, hot mix asphalt, PASER ratings and expands into the City’s sewer cleaning and inspection program.

The sewer project is the result of a $2 million Stormwater, Asset Management and Wastewater Program grant, originally filed in November 2013. Through Thanksgiving week, the project has cleaned and inspected 71,182 linear feet, or about 26 percent of the total project, for an estimated cost of $760,400. The SAW grant program is scheduled to end in June 2017.

This year, the City has spent $3,224,784M on 14 streets encompassing 8.5 miles of roads in its concrete panel replacement program. The program enables the City to stretch its limited budget in a more cost-effective manner. Those statistics includes 38,970 square yards of concrete removed and replaced, 192 utility structures repaired and 88 ADA ramps constructed in the following locations:

  • Hayes (Mills to Telegraph)
  • Champaign (Beech Daly to Telegraph)
  • Mills (Champaign to Hayes)
  • Westlake (Champaign to Myler)
  • Sloan (Ecorse to Champaign)
  • Wolhfeil (Telegraph to Robert)
  • Hayes (Monroe to Pelham)
  • Madden (Beech Daly to Westlake)
  • Holland (Goddard to Wick and Wick to Trolley)
  • Bailey (Chestnut to Eureka)
  • Westlake (Superior to Eureka)
  • Racho (Eureka to Pennsylvania)
  • Hayes (Pine to Monroe)
  • Champaign (Pardee to Pelham is in progress)
  • Racho Road, from Northline to Eureka, will be started next spring.

Another $648,560, covering seven streets and 2.6 miles, has been used in Taylor in its hot mix asphalt program. The HMA program addressed the following locations:

  • Mortenview (Superior to Eureka)
  • Mortenview (Northline to Superior)
  • Lorne (Huron to Pelham)
  • Empire (Allen to Northline)
  • Haskell (Mortenview to Merrick)
  • Haig (Telegraph to Beaumont Hospital-Taylor Campus)
  • Newcastle (West Pointe to Oak)

The City’s HMA program did not count Beech Daly, resurfaced from Eureka to Brest, which was part of a federal aid project ($1.2M total cost; Taylor’s share was $221,028).
