Town of Ira board members discussed over $200,000 worth of repairs planed for Ira's roads during a regular town board meeting on Wednesday.
Michael Hesse, Ira's highway superintendent, explained that 1.5 miles of Watkins Road will be repaved from Mott Road to Ira Station Road, and the portion of Watkins Road that was repaved last year from Mott Road to Route 34 is going to be rechipped. The nearly 3 mile road was split into two phases for budgeting purposes, Hesse said.
The estimated cost to repave Watkins Road is $156,520, Hesse said. "This is a little higher of an estimate," so the project should come in under that price. Rechipping the other half of Watkins Road is estimated to cost the town $28,500, Hesse said.
