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.
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.
