Is your road one of the 22 Spartanburg plans to fix?


SPARTANBURG, SC– Spartanburg City Council approved plans to repave 22 roads during the fiscal year that starts July 1.

The proposed projects are spread throughout the city.

Spartanburg County Council will need to approve the plans before the city can solicit bids for the paving projects.

Tim Carter, Spartanburg City Engineering Manager, says the roads on the list have not been paved in the past two to three decades.

The lifespan of asphalt in a neighborhood is up to 30 years, Carter says.

The estimated cost of the paving project for all 22 streets is $834,336.

$484,336 will be taken from the Spartanburg County Road Fee Program to assist with paving costs. This fund is raised by the $25 fee on motor vehicles in the county.

The city plans to use $350,000 from the Spartanburg County Transportation committee to fund the paving projects. These funds were raised from the county’s portion of the state gas tax.

The roads are ranked 1-100; 1 represents a dirt road and 100 indicated a road that was recently resurfaced.
