SARASOTA, Fla. -- The City’s annual street paving project started this week and will continue through January with approximately 9 miles of streets milled and repaved.

Prior to work commencing, signs will be posted in neighborhoods providing specific dates when crews will be in the area.

Hashay Drive, Hawthorne Street, Hillview Street, and Illehaw Drive are scheduled to be paved this week.

Streets are slated for repaving based on criteria established by an asset management team within the Public Works Department. Throughout the year, crews use a scale of 1-100 to rate roads as they drive around the city. Staff members also take residents’ recommendations into consideration.
