How we're fixing the roads

S. Higby Construction

“Fix the roads” is a comment City leaders hear a lot from residents. But did you know that since 2012, 21.5 miles of Jackson streets have been resurfaced and road spending has increased 152.7 percent?

Improving Jackson’s infrastructure is an ongoing priority for the City. A new section of the City website, Paving Jackson, is designed to keep residents informed on those efforts, with breakdowns of road construction projects over the past 20 years and upcoming improvements. Jackson uses City Street, Water and Sewer funds, which come from tax revenue, to pay for infrastructure projects. Special assessments, along with state and federal funds, are also used for project costs. Looking at the City’s contributions to street construction, a total of $105 million in City funds have gone toward dozens of projects over the past nine years.

More construction projects are on the horizon as the City ramps up efforts to replace lead service lines. Line replacements will also bring extensive street, sidewalk, and curb repairs. Once construction projects are planned for 2022, they will be listed on the Paving Jackson section of the website. It can be found under the “Our Services” tab of the City website or by searching cityofjackson.org/pavingjackson.
