Sharpsburg wraps up $73,000 in paving projects
More than $73,000 in Sharpsburg paving projects wrapped up this week, giving relief to motorists.
Work to redo the length of South Main Street was targeted as part of a commitment to focus on roads in the lower end of town, Mayor Matt Rudzki said.
Cost was about $55,000, with more than half the money slated in this year’s budget. The balance was covered by the state.
Other roads near South Main have been paved in recent project cycles, Rudzki said. They include Bridge, 2nd and 3rd streets.
At the other end of town near the James Sharp Landing, the portion of 13th St. that leads to the Allegheny River was also paved.
Cost was about $18,000 and was paid by grants from the state Department of Community and Economic Development and the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.
