Some residents in southern Coral Springs could soon be in for smoother driving along the roadways.
The city commission will vote on rewarding a contract to General Asphalt, Co., LLC to handle a roadway resurfacing project for parts of the Maplewood subdivision.
The contract amount for $828 thousand includes $50,000 to cover any unexpected changes during the project. Funding comes from the city’s approved capital budget.
General Asphalt’s bid, whose amount was the lowest, was one of five that the city received. General Asphalt completed projects of the same size, scope, and complexity for Coral Springs and other cities, according to a city document.
The resurfaced areas in the Maplewood subdivision will be north of Ramblewood Drive and south of Royal Palm Boulevard, east of Coral Springs Drive, and west of University Drive.
Two other roads that are part of the Maplewood resurfacing project are N.W. 105th Lane, just west of Coral Springs Drive, and N.W. 16th Street, east of University Drive.
The proposed project is part of the Road Resurfacing Program, which oversees the city’s Public Works Capital Improvement Project. The program allows the city to monitor roadways and make improvements wherever necessary.
City officials decide where to resurface roads based on the roadway’s age and condition. Typically, asphalt roads need to be repaved every 25 years, but the program allows the city to make improvements before complete reconstruction is necessary.
If approved, the city will substantially complete the road resurfacing by July 2022, with completion expected in August.
The commission will vote on the contract at their Wednesday meeting at City Hall, located at 9500 W. Sample Road, starting at 6:30 p.m.
