STP FUNDING AIDS IN 1ST AVENUE REPAIRS
Posted on: September 4, 2012
The City of Laurel received a one million dollar grant through the Surface Transportation Program (STP) in 2009 to aid in the road improvements. STP funds may be used for projects on the Federal-aid System. The 1st Avenue project was financed with 80% coming from STP funding and a 20 percent match from the City. Road improvements on 1st Ave are near completion. Other road improvement with the STP funding projects included Victoria St., 13th St., 10th St. and Airport Drive that are already completed. Construction began on the 1st Avenue project in the Spring of 2012. In addition to the overlay of the streets, water services and some sewer lines were replaced on 1st Ave and Airport Dr.
