PUBLIC MEETING NOTICE and REQUEST FOR PUBLIC COMMENTS; CITY OF LITTLE ROCK - 2006 PAVEMENT RESURFACING PLAN

In November 2003, City of Little Rock residents approved a bond issue proposal of $69 million, including an allocation of $8.1 million for resurfacing of asphalt streets over a three-year period. Little Rock Public Works will hold a series of public meetings during September to identify local streets to be resurfaced during the 2006 program in Wards 4, 5 and 7.

Improvements planned with the street resurfacing funds will include repairing street base failures, milling the existing surface, installing a new street surface and installation of pavement markings.
