New road projects have been planned for the City of Aberdeen using funds from their Transportation Benefit District.
On Wednesday night, Public Works Director Rick Sangder presented a map showing plans for the 2016 Citywide Paving Project, highlighting both current plans as well as proposed plans for the funding.
Within the planned projects are seven current plans for sections of roadway that could receive either an overlay on the road or the preparation for an overlay, totaling an estimated $635,000.
Within the projects are jobs on Aberdeen Avenue, Wishkah St, as well as a project to prepare for a 2017 overlay project to fix the roadway on Arnold & 9th Streets. That project is contingent on a grant from Safe Route to Schools.
Sangder says that in 2015, over $547,000 was made in revenue, providing funding for projects throughout the city. In addition to the seven projects currently planned, dozens more throughout the city have been proposed.
In 2013, voters approved the Transportation Benefit District, earmarking tax funds specifically for local transportation projects.
