Wichita City Council OKs plan to fix streets

Roughly 40 miles of shoddy streets will be repaired this year under the annual street repair program Wichita City Council members unanimously approved Tuesday.

The plan targets the roughest streets first, regardless of what council district they are in.

Among the major repaving projects:

* Woodlawn from 29th Street North to K-96

* Grove from Murdock to 12th Street

* West Street from Central to Zoo Boulevard

* Towne East Mall Drive from Kellogg to Douglas

The improvements budgeted at $6 million come as the city's street conditions continue to decline after years of deferred maintenance.

It would take an estimated $10 million a year to hold the city's overall street quality index steady.
