Street sealing costs come in under budget


December 1, 2017


Ironwood — With the city of Ironwood conducting a street repair program over the past several years, most of the streets have been resurfaced and that’s a benefit in many ways.

City manager Scott Erickson noted this week that the summer crack sealing costs came in under budget because the streets are in such good shape, meaning there’s money left over for more sealing next year.

Streets north of U.S. 2 were crack-sealed, as planned, and because the project was so much under budget, some streets south of the highway were also done.

The city commission on Monday authorized a payment of $48,396 to Fahrner Asphalt Sealers for the 2017 crack sealing work.

Commissioners learned that basically every inch of cracked pavement that is sealed is measured to determine the cost of the private company performing the repair program. The bill from Fahrner listed 250,000 linear feet of repairs.

The 2016-’17 asphalt paving project conducted by Angelo Luppino Construction, of Iron Belt, Wis., had total costs of $1,025,609. On Monday, the city commission approved a final payment of $18,277 to the company for the paving work.
