ANDERSON – Work on the repaving of portions of both 38th Street and Broadway is expected to start depending on the schedule for the contractor.

The Anderson Board of Public Works on Tuesday awarded a $2,844,614 contract to E&B Paving, the lower of two bids received for the project.

The work is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

The estimated cost of the project was $2.7 million with $1 million being provided by the Indiana Department of Transportation through the Community Crossings grant program.

Chuck Leser, city engineer, said the scope of work will be revised to meet the estimated cost of $2.7 million.

The city’s $1 million in matching funds is being obtained through the county wheel tax.

The latest Community Crossings grant will be used to repave 38th Street from Scatterfield Road to Columbus Avenue and from Madison Avenue to the railroad tracks at Raible Avenue.

The funds will also allow for the repaving of Broadway from School Street north to the intersection with Indiana 9.
