10th Street from McGee to Main
11th Street from Main to Broadway

Streets are selected for resurfacing based on their condition. Staff members from the Street Preservation section of the Street and Traffic Division of the Public Works Department perform distress surveys from November to early spring to determine which streets are in the greatest need of resurfacing. This year's budget for resurfacing is $10 million. The resurfacing is performed by contractors and the work is monitored by City staff.
