Pottsville Outlines Proposed 2024 Street Paving Program

What streets made the cut for this year?

Pottsville officials spelled out the city’s 2024 proposed paving program.

Here is a rundown of the streets, or portions of streets, that Pottsville proposes to have paved this year:

  • S. 4th St. from Norwegian to Mahantongo Sts.
  • S. 9th St. from Mahantongo to Howard
  • 9th & Mahantongo Sts.
  • N. 18th St. from Villa St. to Dead End
  • 3 portions of Forest Rd.

  • 2200 Block W. Norwegian St. (Portion)
  • Edwards Avenue (400 and 500 Block)

During an overview of 2024 Paving Program, City Administrator told Council members that Pottsville expects to use more than 2,200 tons of asphalt on its projects this year. That number has increased every year since at least 2020, he said.

Further, the cost of materials to complete these projects has increased over time, too. In 2022, he said, materials cost $61.70 per ton. Last year, that number was $65 per ton. And in 2024, the cost-per-ton for road paving materials is at $67.
