Langley gets grant for street work

The city of Langley will receive a $99,068 grant from the state Transportation Improvement Board for paving work on Anthes and Cascade avenues.

Public Works Director Challis Stringer said Anthes will be reworked between First and Second streets because three small sections of the roadway are failing.

More limited work is planned on Cascade Avenue between Second and Fourth streets, where the top 1-inch layer of the roadway is giving way.

The resurfacing work will be done this summer and both projects will be done at the same time, Stringer said.

The repaving is expected to take a week at most, Stringer said, and is dependent on good weather. The city is hoping to schedule the work when it won’t have a major impact on the downtown.

That’s easier said than done.

“Usually any disruption is disrupting to people, whether it’s short or long,” Stringer said.

The city will contribute $5,000 in matching funds for the project.
