A lengthy list of Grand Forks street repair projects is being readied for bid this spring. The city council looked over the construction menu last night - ranging from asphalt mill overlay to concrete panel replacements.

The larger projects will be funded 80-percent by the city and 20-percent through special assessments. Prior to the recent sales tax vote the project share was 50-50.

City Engineer Al Grasser says his office is trying to squeeze two-point-three million dollars in upgrades into a two-million dollar budget.

Grasser says if construction costs come in high they can always remove one of the projects from the list. The bids are due March 19th.
