JAMESTOWN – The road repair season is slated to get underway in the City of Jamestown later this month.








The city’s Public Works Department announced the long list of projects that are scheduled to occur.

Officials say increased CHIPS funding from New York State is giving crews the go-ahead to scale up and continue to work on more projects this year than in years past.









Specifically, the department is looking to hire additional summer labor positions.

“We are able to take on a large number of projects,” said Public Works Director Jeff Lehman in a statement. “I am proud of the work our team has done to help use this boost of funds to tackle many projects this summer.”















A detailed map of street projects and expected completion dates can be found on the city’s website at JamestownNY.gov/2021Streets.

Crews say every street is evaluated on the city’s Complete Streets Program to see if striped bike lanes or sharrows can be included.
