City resurfaces neglected streets

City resurfaces neglected streetsAfter enduring many years of potholes, cracks, and all-around deteriorated roads, drivers in Coral Gables are now enjoying smooth rides.

It took just two years to complete the Street Resurfacing Initiative, proposed by city manager Pat Salerno and approved by the city commission in July 2011.

Approximately 55 lane miles of roads throughout the city have been resurfaced, eliminating a 10-year backlog. Moving forward, crews will focus on street resurfacing needs as they arise. Residents will no longer be placed on a waiting list; instead, streets will be resurfaced within a year after being identified. he project has positively impacted thousands of drivers and approximately 2,650 single and multifamily residences that front the newly resurfaced streets.
