ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - St. Paul has finished repaving 11 of its 20 roads designated as the worst in the city.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports (https://bit.ly/ZNprc4 ) Mayor Chris Coleman said Tuesday the first phase of the “Terrible 20” project has been completed. Public works officials identified the roads as some of the most heavily used in the city and among those in the worst condition.

The initiative followed a harsh winter that tore up roads across the region. Coleman says the city doesn’t want to repeat the winter and spring it had this past year. He has proposed funding to fix the remaining nine roads in the project by the end of next year.

The projected cost for the 11 streets was about $2.5 million at the start of construction in September.
