HOW MUCH ROAD RESURFACING DO YOU GET FOR ONE MILLION DOLLARS?
Release Date: June 02, 2010

 
HOW MUCH ROAD RESURFACING DO YOU GET FOR $1,000,000?  Last week I submitted to the Town Board a proposed capital budget --which included $1,000,000 for road resurfacing. Received this interesting info from the Commissioner of Public Works, Victor Carosi
 
At a recent work session, I was asked to approximate the costs of paving a roadway per mile.  Including various costs items that are incorporated into a paving project, such as milling old asphalt, and averaging a roadway width to 28 feet, a very rough estimate for general budgeting purposes is $275,000 per mile.  The current draft capital budget proposes $1,000,000 for roadway resurfacing.  At the estimated $/mile, 1 Million dollars buys 3.6 miles of paving.     Note the Town has approximately 130.8 miles of roadway.
 
AN APOLOGY....
Last Friday I posted info about a job fair for students that was held yesterday in White Plains. The fair was sponsored by the city of White Plains. I learned of the job fair for students from lohud.com. When I read the news release I was under the impression that the event was open to everyone. I was wrong. Students had to pre-register for the event. I apologize to those who were inconvenienced. A student intern in my office is trying to locate summer job openings that may still be available.
 
REMINDER: STORY WALK AT HARTSBROOK NATURE TRAIL SATURDAY MORNING AT 10:30
If you have small children, you should take them to Hartsbrook Nature Trail (off of Ridge Road) Saturday morning at 10:30. STORY WALK is an exciting way to encourage kids to love reading and open space. Book pages are placed on stilts along the nature trail.
