The con­trac­tor hired by the City of Cor­ner Brook to pave streets this year has be­gun putting as­phalt down.

The city awarded the $965,635 pav­ing con­tract to Ma­rine Con­trac­tors ear­lier this month and the con­trac­tor has started re­pair­ing re­cent cuts made to city streets to re­pair wa­ter­lines un­der the roads.

The con­trac­tor will then move on to do larger sec­tions of some roads.

This year’s pav­ing work is be­ing funded through the city’s Fed­eral Gas Tax Re­bate. Ac­cord­ing to Mayor Charles Pen­der, the city has ap­plied for ad­di­tional fund­ing and hopes to do more pav­ing work later in the sea­son.

The fol­low­ing ar­eas will see some street pav­ing in 2017. This list is sub­ject to change.
