The Harford County Board of Estimates agreed this week to spend $338,000 to repave 12 miles of roads in seven neighborhoods, including Edgewood, Joppatowne and Bel Air.
"These are all roads that have been in the system for 15 years or more," said H. Hudson Myers III, chief engineer of the county's department of public works.
Mr. Myers said some of the work will begin tomorrow and all of the repaving should be completed by Thanksgiving.
The board of estimates agreed to award the repaving contract to Gray and Son Inc., which submitted the low bid.
According to the contract, Gray and Son will cover the aging roads with a 1-inch layer of asphalt as part of the county's road maintenance program, Mr. Myers said.
Roads to be repaved include:
* Harewood Court, Tulip Court, Tupelo Court and Hemlock, Juniper, Harewood, Bayberry, Tupelo and Hawthorne roads in the Edgewood Meadows neighborhood near Edgewood.
