The City of Memphis is increasing paving efforts that will lead to smoother streets. The Mayor and City Council officials have allocated $19.5 million for Public Works FY20 street paving. This is the largest paving budget —ever.  

“Paving our streets is a concern I hear about in nearly every neighborhood of our city,” Mayor Jim Strickland said. “With the partnership of City Council, we increased our paving budget for the fourth time, and over the next several months, we will see the results. We still have more to do, but we’re headed in the right direction.” 

“We have been able to gradually increase our paved miles each year,” Robert Knecht, Public Works Director said. “With this additional revenue, we are getting closer to our goal of repaving 350 lane miles.” 

An interactive map was launched last year by the City for residents to view when their streets are scheduled for paving. Click here to view.
