City of South Bend gives midseason update on street paving, some streets to be paved next year

SOUTH BEND, Ind. - The City of South Bend's Department of Public Works has a midseason update on 2022 street paving work. More than 35 lane miles have been completed so far.

Work is being done by both city crews and area contractors. Paving work is bid out to contractors in phases to ensure they have the capacity to complete the work.

Many paving bids have come in higher than budgeted because of inflation and contractor capacity, so the city is pushing some of the street work to next year.

The following streets will be paved next year:

  • Ameritech Drive & Cleveland Road intersection
  • Eastmont Drive from Riverside to Northlea drives
  • Hill Street from Jefferson Boulevard to Colfax Avenue
  • Jackson Road from Fellows to Miami streets
  • Miami Street from Calvert Street to Ireland Road (city crews will perform a temporary patch on the worst portions of Miami to get it through the winter)
  • Rainbow Drive from Southlea Drive to cul-de-sac
  • Sample Street from Bendix Road to Illinois Street
  • Sheridan Street from Lincoln Way West to Keller Street (parking lane only)

City officials are determining a way to do temporary patches until full paving can be done next year.
