Say good-bye to one of the bad memories from this year’s harsh winter.
The city launched on Wednesday a road resurfacing program.
Crews will work on 100 miles of arterial streets, 90 miles of side streets, and five miles of alleys.
“This is one of the largest paving seasons we have on record,” said Mayor Emanuel.
The mayor says this is up from 2011, when 175 miles were resurfaced.
The price tag for this season’s work: $200 million.
