Two dozen streets throughout the City of Zephyrhills are set to be improved this year.
The Zephyrhills City Council on Oct. 25 unanimously approved a construction agreement with Zephyrhills-based Asphalt Paving Systems Inc., to resurface a total of 24 streets within the city limits.
Total cost of the work is not to exceed $598,572, slightly under the city’s budgeted amount of $600,000 for the project.
The streets will be repaired with either cape seal or double-micro surfacing, according to Zephyrhills City Manager Billy Poe.
The agreement — part of a piggyback bid with Lee County in southwest Florida — calls for work to be fully completed within 45 calendar days of the notice of commencement.
The action came following a staff recommendation from the city manager and Public Works Director Shane LeBlanc.
