At its Tuesday, April 10, meeting, Lancaster City Council discussed recommendations for road repaving that were made during its recent planning session.

Each member listed two roads he or she would like to see would like to see selected by the County Transportation (CTC) for improvements.

Each year the city suggests roads to the CTC) for resurfacing. The CTC then choses which ones will receive their repairs, which are paid for through funds from the CTC and S.C. Department of Transportation.

City Solid Waste Director Marty Cauthen, who’s evaluating the recent submissions, told council Tuesday that all of the roads listed are state-owned and that some city-owned roads need to be added to the list.

The roads include Rock, Taylor, Survey, French, Dunlap, Hughes and Springs streets, Hampton and Hawthorne roads, Crestfield Drive and Clinton Avenue.

“If we turn these roads in, they will not be considered until next fiscal year,” Cauthen, who added that because of the process, a city-owned road has a great chance of being selected sooner.

No further recommendations or changes to the list were made.
