MANSFIELD -- City officials plan to resurface 18.23 miles of roads during 2020, at an estimated cost of $4.41 million.

Mansfield City Council will be asked on Jan. 21 to approve the work, which will be done in two phases, according to city engineer Bob Bianchi.

"We do it every year," Bianchi said. "We rate the city streets and decide which ones should be resurfaced."

The city will also engage in a pavement remarking program this year, spending $130,000 from the street fund to re-stripe about 11 miles of roads.

Most of the funds for the paving come from the voter-approved "pothole-haters tax," though some money may come from the city's water and sewer funds for things like catch basins.

Phase one work in wards 1, 2 and 3 would begin in April with work in wards 4, 5, 6 concluding in November. He said as his office rated the streets that needed resurfacing the most, they found roads in the 4th Ward were the ones that needed the most attention.

Bianchi said the two phases would be bid separately, allowing for the most competitive bidding process.
