The Greenville City Council has approved its major street improvement program for this year.

The work should be done later this summer.

City Manager Dave Willey said the list consists of streets that are going to be constructed from scratch or completely milled down and resurfaced with asphalt.

Bids were received from three asphalt contractors.

Approved was the bid from Rooters Asphalt of Beckemeyer in the amount of $196,035, which is below the original estimate.

Work to be done includes a cul-de-sac at Villa Verde, an extension of Eagle Drive, Killarney Drive, from Idler Lane east to near Linder Boulevard; Killarney from Durley to Hena, 185 feet west of Killarney on Allen Street, 145 feet west of Killarney on St. John Street, and Spruce and Prairie streets from College Avenue to South Street.

Other projects include curb replacement on Killarney and Spruce, replacing two driveway entrances on Killarney, center line striping and applying a tack coat to all milled surfaces.

The council voted 4 to 0 in favor of this program. It is funded from a half-cent sales tax approved several years ago.

The council is also considering installing curb and guttering on the east side of Dewey Street, along the park district ball fields, if and when funding is available.

This street asphalt program is separate from the street oiling and chipping which is scheduled to be done in mid-July. That will be paid for with motor fuel tax funds.
