Twenty-five residential streets and two public parking lots will share more than 9,500 tons of new pavement this summer.

The annual list is set for repaving projects along Lawrence's residential streets.

Tonight, Lawrence city commissioners are expected to hire LRM Industries Inc. to pour 9,538 tons of new asphalt along 25 city streets and two city parking lots.

Cost: $665,072.

Terese Gorman, city engineer, said she expected the work to begin near the end of the month and be finished by Oct. 1. Affected residents already have been notified in writing, and they will receive written reminders on their front doors a day before actual work begins.

``The inconvenience will be primarily for one day,'' Gorman said. ``During that day, we would request your patience. We will try to get you in and out as soon possible, but at times it will be inconvenient.''

LRM crews already have been working on repaving projects for some of the city's major streets. On Saturday crews repaved 15th Street, from Haskell Avenue to Massachusetts Street, and are hoping this week to tackle Lawrence Avenue, from 27th to 31st streets.

Next week, crews are scheduled to start pouring new asphalt on Kasold Drive, from Sixth Street to Augusta Drive.

As always, all repaving work is dependent on weather, Gorman said.

Here's a rundown of the residential streets to be repaved as the summer wears on:

  • Arrowhead Drive, from Princeton Boulevard to Peterson Road.
