Frost Street in Seligman to be repaved

Wednesday, April 3, 2019

Last work on street was 10 years ago

The city of Seligman is looking to repave Frost Street due to it being a high-traffic street and facing growing issues.

Brian Nichols, Seligman city clerk, said the process to determine which streets need paving really comes down to which streets are more traveled and in need of repair.

“Frost Street is very heavily traveled,” he said. “More-so, the road is uneven in spots, and we want to try to straighten that out.”

Nichols said crews will come in to patch and fill in any voids to level it out, then they will go through and pave the street.

“Nothing is actually official just yet,” he said. “We are waiting on a quote then the projects will be put out for bids.”

Nichols said when a road gets to the point that minor patch work and sealing isn’t working, the city tries to make an effort to fix it.

“When the city paved a road that is about a third of the length of Frost Street, it cost about $25,000,” he said. “So, I would expect that Frost Street will cost somewhere around $75,000 to fix.”

Nichols said the project would only take a couple of days to finish.

“Frost Street hasn’t been repaved in the last 10 years,” he said. “There were other streets that were discussed, but where the money should be spent is on Frost Street.

“No road is perfect, but it needs the attention so it will get the attention.”
