Mayor Caldwell State of the City Address

On February 26, 2014, Mayor Caldwell gave his State of the City Address.  Here’s what he had to say about his roads program:

“The first priority was ROADS.

When I took office as Mayor, we set a goal to repave 300 lane miles of substandard roads per year for the next five years. Last year, we repaved 398 lane miles, exceeding our goal by more than 30 percent.

And, we’re going to keep pushing ahead. Already, this year, the city has repaved 66 lane miles, and if we keep up with this pace, we’ll exceed this year’s goal as well. In our upcoming budget, I am asking the Council to appropriate $140 million dollars for road repaving so that we can keep on track.

Wherever I go, people come up to me and thank me for repaving their road, or say they already see a difference in the condition of our roads.

I want to let you know that we are not going to slow down. I want to finish repaving all of our substandard roads in the next 4 years. On this, the community has spoken loud and clear.

I’m pleased to announce today that we’re starting the repaving work for Meheula Parkway the week of March 17th.”
